What you need to know about tax controversy in 2019

September 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT


Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1 free CPE credit.


Businesses are facing unprecedented levels of global tax controversy risk. Increasingly, countries are participating in joint and simultaneous audits, using automation to identify potential tax audit issues and threatening or pursuing criminal sanctions as part of their tax controversy approach. At the same time, supranational organizations, such as the Organization for Co-operation and Development (OECD), are exploring new approaches that include a global minimum tax and a completely new approach to nexus and profit allocation (“BEPS 2.0”) – while its original base erosion and profit-shifting project continues to be implemented. Join our panelists as they discuss these issues and more, culminating in a roundtable discussion of leading practices for managing your organization’s tax controversy risk.

Topics will include:

  • Global controversy trends, including the global outlook, key audit triggers and developments in digital tax administration
  • The 2019 OECD Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) report on joint audits
  • The OECD FTA handbook on phase II of the International Compliance Assurance Programme
  • Results from EY’s 40-country survey on the growing use of criminal sanctions
  • Leading practices for protecting your business

  • Rob Hanson – EY Global Tax Controversy Leader
  • Jean-Pierre Lieb – EY EMEIA Tax Policy & Controversy Leader
