Global Tax Conference at NYU

On Friday, October 28, from 8 am to 4:30, we'll be hosting a conference at NYU Law School (in Vanderbilt Hall, room 210) entitled Divergent Country Views of Base Erosion and Profit-Shifting. This is a follow-up to the June 1 conference on OECD-BEPS that we co-sponsored in Amsterdam with that event's hosts (and co-sponsors this time as well), the Amsterdam Centre for Tax Law.  More information, including re. how to register, is available here.

The conference will feature divergent views - the title is definitely right about that - from academics, practitioners, and business people from the U.S., the EU, and Brazil, regarding OECD-BEPS, the EU state aid cases, country-by-country reporting, and less-developed-countries' issues with treaties.  Indeed, here is the schedule:
