International Tax Conference: “Towards a New World Tax Order?”

Munich, Germany, • English

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), in cooperation with Business at OECD (BIAC) and BusinessEurope, is hosting an international tax conference in Munich to discuss key tax policy issues arising from the international discussion around the challenges of digitalization, with a view to facilitating cross-border trade and investment in the post-BEPS era.


The conference will bring together experts in the field of taxation with representatives from  international and regional organizations/institutions (OECD, UN, European Commission), as well as the business sector, to discuss tax policy issues such as the reallocation of taxing rights, significant economic presence and transfer pricing, minimum taxation and dispute avoidance and dispute resolution within the light of digitalization in the post-BEPS era.

Furthermore, as the implementation of BEPS in national jurisdictions as well as in the treaty network is progressing, dispute prevention and dispute resolution are becoming more crucial and will also be discussed.
