Over the years, multinational companies engaged in digital operations have managed to reduce tax incidence - using tax havens or through business structuring. Not to be left out, many countries introduced specific tax regimes to bring these technology companies within their tax ambit. Additionally, introduction and adoption of base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) Action Plans (for example, the ‘Equalization Levy’ in India) has brought taxation equality for these technology companies based on customer location. This webinar will cover the changes over time to bring international structures and transactions tax.

Topics will include:

• A background of the changes that the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has been advocating under the BEPS programme
• The key issues for consideration when choosing jurisdictions and instruments for cross-border investments, and what has changed in terms of choices and structures
• The adoption of measures by different countries pursuant to BEPS Action 1 on the taxation of digital income, and discussion on India’s introduction of Equalization Levy
• The future of tax on digital multinationals, including the impact of the OECD/G20 global minimum tax rate
