Tax Law Speaker Series: Legal Challenges in Creating a Global Tax Regime with OECD Pillar One Blueprint

Like the Internet connecting the computers of the world, a global tax regime to be created with the OECD Pillar One Blueprint seeks to integrate and standardize national corporate taxes in respect of automated digital services and consumer facing businesses of large corporations. Is the world ready for such a “revolutionary” global tax regime? Can international consensus be built on divergent national fiscal interests and tax laws? What can we learn from the implementation of global standards from BEPS 1.0 about the chance of countries’ adoption of  the global tax regime? This talk offers some insights on these questions.

This event qualifies for 1.5 CPD credits.
