Sandra Parthie Event 11. May 2020 online conference: Taxing the Digital Economy – is a Global Solution the Answer?

Fair allocation of taxing rights remains a challenge. Although there have been substantial changes in the area of International and EU-taxation due to the OECD/G20 BEPS Project, the increasing importance of the Digital Economy demands a modification of current tax rules. To prevent multilateral measures like the implementation of Digital Taxes, there is broad consensus, that the goal must be a global answer by the end of 2020. The Inclusive Framework of the OECD is working on that solution and developed Pillar 1 and 2.

Fair allocation of taxing rights remains a challenge. Although there have been substantial changes in the area of International and EU-taxation due to the OECD/G20 BEPS Project, the increasing importance of the Digital Economy demands a modification of current tax rules. To prevent multilateral measures like the implementation of Digital Taxes, there is broad consensus, that the goal must be a global answer by the end of 2020. The Inclusive Framework of the OECD is working on that solution and developed Pillar 1 and 2.

In this online conference, we discuss with our speakers and over 150 participants:
