Understanding Tax Sovereignty: A Webinar

Understanding Tax Sovereignty: A Webinar

We would like to cordially invite you to our webinar for the month of June, which will look into tax sovereignty and how it’s being affected, particularly in the European Union.

Globalization and the greater freedom of movement of people, businesses and money have impacted the ability of countries to set their own policies and tax those they believe should be taxed.

Furthermore, OECD-led projects like BEPS and European initiatives such as the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) have imposed new challenges for jurisdictions looking to do what is best for their economies.

Our webinar on tax sovereignty will specifically look at what governments need to do to dictate their own tax policies, while falling in line with increased pressure from international organizations to curtail tax avoidance, money laundering and other sorts of financial crimes.

Make sure to join us on Wednesday, June 20th at 14:00 London BST.

Seats are limited and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on another Taxlinked live event.
