The 16th Annual Tax Planning Strategies – U.S. and Europe will be held from March 16 to 18 in Milan. It will focus on practical planning strategies for multinational corporations and their international advisors, as well as provide insight in how government tax officials may view the international tax landscape in light of the BEPS project and other initiatives that affect corporate taxpayers.
Our Tax Law Partner Thierry Lesage will be a speaker on a panel entitled "Hybrid Arrangements in a Post-BEPS World" where the following topics will be discussed: The issuance of the final reports on the OECD/G20 base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project in 2015 was a dramatic and sweeping event.
This panel will focus on Action Item 2 of those reports, addressing the neutralizing of the effects of hybrid mismatch arrangements. More specifically, the panel will explore the impact of BEPS implementation on cross-border hybrid instrument and entity structures in Luxembourg, the UK, the US, Germany and Switzerland, taking into account legislative changes proposed or adopted to date as well as the prospects for future change.
In addition to considering the impact of such implementation, the panel will explore alternative structures and considerations for living in a post-BEPS world.
