What's On

This event was re-scheduled from 6 November.

An international tax reform with significant impact on consumer-facing and digital intensive businesses is underway.

The OECD published its blueprints on Pillar One and Pillar Two under the tax digitalisation/globalisation project on 12 October 2020, offering a glimpse of the current status on its proposals to address tax challenges arising from digitalisation of the global economy.

Pillar One aims to ensure that digitally-intensive or consumer-facing multinational enterprises (MNEs) pay taxes where they conduct business but do not have a taxable presence under the existing international tax rules, while Pillar Two looks at the introduction of a global minimum tax that would help countries address issues relating to base erosion and profit shifting by MNEs. The blueprints set out the detailed technical design of various components of the two Pillars as well as issues that members of the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework have yet to reach an agreement on.

To equip members with a better understanding of technical nature of the proposed tax rules and the impact on their businesses, we are pleased to have invited PwC's Cecilia Lee and Jesse Kavanagh to share their insights on the blueprints and explain what the proposals mean to MNEs, tax authorities and other relevant stakeholders.
