Join our Transfer Pricing Events in Geneva and Zurich- Updates on Digital Economy and Financial Transactions - Tax and Legal blog

Picture TP event

Join our upcoming Transfer Pricing Event during which we will update you on the recent developments regarding the Taxing of the Digital Economy and Financial Transactions that will take place on Tuesday, 28 January 2020 in Geneva and on Wednesday, 29 January 2020 in Zurich.

Digital Economy
The OECD proposals regarding the Taxing of the Digital Economy are wide-reaching reforms that will have a broad impact on the international tax framework and are not limited to the technology sector or those businesses that might be considered to be highly digitalised. During the events we will discuss the impact of the OECD discussion papers on Swiss companies from a practical perspective and in the light of the discussions held during / after the public consultations organised by the OECD. Furthermore, at our event in Zurich Ronny Rosenblatt from the Swiss State Secretariat for International Finance (SIF) will share his thoughts and a future outlook with us on this topic.

Financial Transactions
Also the new OECD discussion draft on transfer pricing for financial transactions, which is expected to be published prior to the events, will be discussed so that you are directly fully aware of the practical implications the new discussion draft could have. During our event in Geneva Natassia Burkhalter from the Swiss Federal Tax Authorities (SFTA) will share her view on this topic with us.

The events will cover the following topics:

  • Summary of the wider discussions held regarding the “Programme of Work for Addressing the Tax Challenges of the Digitalisation of the Economy”, including Pillar I and Pillar II, and a practical future outlook for Swiss companies.
  • Impact of the proposals on the international tax framework (e.g. Changes to the OECD TP Guidelines, Double tax treaties, Attributions of profits to PEs, changes to domestic law), including latest country developments.
  • Expected OECD discussion draft on the transfer pricing for financial transactions.
  • Insights from SIF and SFTA representatives.
