Taxand Global Conference Commentary "What is Your Substance, Whereof Are you Made?" Is Tax Planning Truly on Your Board's Agenda?
As the OECD begins developing its 'Action Plan' to tackle tax avoidance and profit shifting, it is essential that multinationals' Boards align tax structure and their business operations closely to avoid scrutiny and reduce tax risks. This topic was discussed today at the Taxand Global Conference 2013.

Not Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining
As the number of consumers on the internet increases, companies - particularly those involved in e-commerce - are continually looking to expand the sales and services offered in cyberspace. Multinational IT departments are also looking for ways to use "cloud computing" to drive cost efficiencies for the business by reducing overheads, capital expenditures and maintenance costs. However without the correct structures, transfer pricing approach and procedures in place, online companies could find themselves exposed to retrospective taxation. This topic was discussed today at the Taxand Global Conference 2013
