THE ATAF CONFERENCE ON CROSS BORDER TAXATION IN AFRICA
Following the Consultative Conference on New Rules of the Global Tax Agenda which took place in March 2014, the ATAF Council is resuming discussion on cross cutting taxation issues that affect African countries. Cross border taxation refers to the number of OECD BEPS-related Action points to be finalised in mid-2015 as well as those additional aspects that contribute to base erosion and are most important to African countries.
It is therefore envisaged that this conference will focus on two aspects, i) BEPS-related topics as a matter of confirming an African position on the action points; and ii) Providing African countries an opportunity to define the base eroding practises that are most relevant to Africa. This latter part is to affirm Africa’s voice in the global tax arena and provide the ATAF Cross Border Taxation (CBT) Technical Committee with an approach to articulate at international for a, thus driving forward African positions on technical tax matters.
The conference will therefore look at aspects of commodity pricing, interest deductions and business restructuring done by multinational enterprises in Africa. Further to this, an in-depth analysis on tax incentives and trade mispricing will form the basis for discussion among African countries on how to articulate these concerns through ATAF.
