Deloitte International Tax Symposium 2018

Navigating the new landscape confidently

The anti-Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) measures introduced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) constitute the most significant international tax reform in recent years.

Recently, Malaysia has signed the Multilateral Convention (“MLI”) to implement tax treaty-related measures to prevent BEPS. Given this, it is vital for CFOs and in-house tax specialists to fully understand the impact of the anti-BEPS measures and MLI on their groups’ operations, financing and holding structures as well as the transfer pricing position.

Join us for an intensive one-day symposium that is designed to provide you with an understanding on the key anti-BEPS measures and transfer pricing issues so that you are prepared to navigate through the changing landscape of international tax.

Deloitte International Tax Symposium 2018


  • What is MLI and how does it impact us?
  • Why is it crucial to differentiate between royalty and service fee?
  • Managing transfer pricing and dispute resolution in the post-BEPS era
  • Preparing for Earning Stripping Rules
  • Managing PE risk and understanding anti-treaty shopping rules
  • Other issues in vogue: Substance, digital economy and U.S. tax reform
