Event description

Description

The CFE Tax Advisers Europe Forum will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday 06 June 2019 from 9am to 5pm, on the topic of “Creating Tax Certainty in an Uncertain World: Double Taxation, Tax Rulings & Dispute Resolution Processes”.

In an increasingly digitalising economy, the number of tax disputes arising from double taxation continue to grow, as evidenced by the OECD’s 2017 MAP Statistics. Given the latest OECD consultation paper on possible taxation solutions to digitalisation of the economy indicates that the Inclusive Framework are discussing significant revisions to established profit allocation concepts, there will inevitably be increased uncertainty and, logically, a resulting increase in disputes. This will particularly be the case if the Inclusive Framework does not include dispute resolution processes in any eventual agreement reached to revise taxation principles. In any event, BEPS implementation will also likely lead to tax certainty issues, resulting in further disputes.

The 2019 CFE Tax Advisers Europe Forum will examine existing compliance mechanisms under Action 14 of the BEPS Action Plan and Mutual Agreement Procedure, as well as the EU Dispute Resolution Mechanisms Directive. The Forum will further discuss means of avoiding disputes, such as confirmatory tax rulings, advance pricing agreements (APAs) and exchange of information. The Forum will also question the impact of potential further revisions of international taxation principles and corporate taxation reform contained in the EU anti-tax avoidance directives on tax certainty.

Discussions will be split across four panels, with the second and third panel examining the OECD and EU dispute resolution mechanisms, respectively. The first panel will discuss and analyse current means of avoiding disputes, in particular the indirect tax EU pilot ruling scheme, VAT Cross-Border Rulings, “CBR”, and share experiences of the scheme in practice. The fourth panel will discuss tax certainty issues related to the State Aid challenges of tax rulings and advance pricing agreements (APAs).

The panels will consider questions such as:

• OECD and EU tax dispute resolution mechanisms, their efficiency and whether they improve tax certainty;
• The impact of dispute resolution processes on taxpayers, and their rights and obligations;
• Means of avoiding tax disputes, such as cross-border rulings, and their efficacy;
• Whether a European tax court or international tax administration ought to be established;
• Whether the European Commission should issue guidance on the State aid proofing of tax rulings given the uncertainty arising from State aid inquiries (confirmatory rulings and APAs)?
