ATAF Consultative Conference on New Rules of the Global Tax Agenda
Please use this site for more information and conference related updates,: http://www.atafgta.com/
Base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) refers to tax planning strategies that exploit gaps and mismatches in tax rules to make profits ‘disappear’ for tax purposes or to shift profits to locations where there is little or no real activity but the taxes are low, resulting in little or no overall corporate tax being paid. The BEPS Project and its related Action Plan should provide countries with domestic and international instruments that will better align rights to tax with economic activity.
To this end, the ATAF Council will host a consultative meeting to discuss, inter alia, the issues on the global tax agenda and around the BEPS project and its importance and implications for African countries.
* Kindly note that attendance to this conference is by invitation only *
