A break at a conference

Topics include: post-conflict financing, taxation of drugs, legalization of marijuana and associated revenue, transfer pricing challenges in light of the BEPS project, cases pending in the EU, recent cases in Colombia, and the current status of the BEPS project. Will BEPS actually be implemented? Because several international and local law procedures need for the BEPS Plan to become a reality. The challenges of BEPS for developing countries will also be a talking point. During the conference the new trends in General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAARs) will also be discussed. Other questions that will be addressed are 'are we moving towards a world with more Permanent Establishments?' and 'is there an alternative model to the taxing of multinationals?'.
