Bringing together in-house transfer pricing leaders, leading advisors and senior policy makers shaping the international tax landscape in Australia and beyond.

Hear directly from the ATO
The Australian Taxation Office continues to mark its territory as one of the most influential tax authorities in the world. Don't miss the opportunity to hear directly from the ATO on where they are focusing their efforts, including anti avoidance and diverted profits tax, justified trust and governance initiatives, and a glace to what's in store for the year ahead.

The latest thinking on intra-group financing
Financial transactions have been in the spotlight in recent years given the ATO's recent Practical Compliance Guide and the OECD's release of its discussion draft, with further details expected this year. This session will explore the industries reaction to the first OECD discussion draft, latest ATO guidance, and the current landscape in Australia after Chevron.

Corporate governance and justified trust
The ATO's ongoing justified trust programs means that Australia's top 1000 companies need to be prepared for risk reviews. This session will explore the justified trust program from an industry perspective, issues arising from reviews and thoughts on how multinationals are effectively managing transfer pricing risk.

How is the in-house tax function evolving?
In a constantly evolving global tax landscape, tax functions are increasingly having to deal with an increasing work load with limited resources. This session will bring together leading industry experts to explore the role of technology in the modern day in-house tax function, the insourcing vs outsourcing debate, and the attributes required for a Head of Tax and Transfer Pricing in the current climate.

TP documentation: industry perspectives
With the first round of CbCR deadlines passed for many, we explore the road to transfer pricing documentation submission, and multinationals discuss their initial experiences with BEPS Action 13 as well as the practical challenges encountered with Local File/Master File Implementation. This session will also look at recent ATO guidance and simplified transfer pricing documentation rules.

The digital economy and Australia's corporate tax system
The digital economy remains at the top of the agenda for both policy makers and tax authorities, with many OECD members wanting to reach an agreed approach to taxing the digital economy by 2020. With the Australian Treasury's recent discussion paper setting forth implications for a DST, this session will address some of the wider issues, and what these developments may mean for businesses.
