Date: Thursday, 4th February 2021
In collaboration with PwC, a Strategic Alliance Partner of Insurance Ireland, we are hosting a virtual Insurance Tax Policy briefing. The briefing will focus on the OECD work to reform the international corporate tax system.
International tax policy has undergone fundamental changes in recent years driven by the OECD BEPS project, US tax reform and anti-avoidance measures from the EU. The pace and impact of change is accelerating and in October 2020 the OECD released proposals regarding a global minimum corporate tax rate which will affect all businesses with cross-border activities and proposals targeted at highly digitized and consumer-facing businesses. The briefing will consider the impact of these proposals on the insurance sector.
The briefing will be designed to give business leaders in the insurance industry an understanding of how these changes will impact their businesses considering various business models across the sector. While of interest to Tax Directors the briefing will also focus on business and strategic issues and will therefore also be of interest to a broad audience including CFOs and CEOs.
