Fundamental reform of the Tax Treaty Network

Date: 11 July 2017
Time: 18:00 - 19:00 UTC + 2:00


  • Summary

On 7 June the first raft of countries have signed up to the new multilateral instrument (MLI) as part of the BEPs initiative.

​This represents a fundamental change to the way tax treaties around the world will operate and will have a major impact on the structure of taxation of multinational companies. The use of intermediate holding companies, the rules on permanent establishment and the availability of reduced rates of withholding tax will all be affected.

BDO specialists will explain how the new rules will operate and what this means for your business in a variety of countries.

Who should attend?

The webinar is aimed at CFOs and Tax Directors from all businesses with international operations. Although the US is not expected to be a signatory to the MLI in the near future, many US multinationals will still be affected by the changes.  

We hope you will find the subject matter relevant to your business and look forward to you joining us on the day.
