William Fry Tax Advisors (Taxand Ireland) will host the 8th annual Taxand Global Conference in Dublin on 26-28 April 2016, joined by more than 350 attendees from over 40 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Advisers from Taxand, the world’s largest global organisation of tax advisors to multinational businesses, and a range of guest speakers, will discuss the most topical tax issues affecting multinationals, exploring smarter taxes for connected businesses in the post-BEPS world.
Tax advisors from around the globe will be joined onstage by key business leaders and guest speakers. John Moran, former Secretary General of the Department of Finance and current member of the Board of Directors of the European Investment Bank will speak about his experience during Ireland’s banking crisis. Martin A. Sullivan, Chief Economist at Tax Analysts, will speak on the prospect of US tax reform after the 2016 Presidential election. Jonathan Haidt, Professor at New York University Stern School of Business will present on how to use moral psychology to better understand the people you work with while examining the differences in human nature and morality across the globe. They will be accompanied by a number of other speakers and panels on topics covering EU State Aid rules, Permanent Establishments and patent boxes.
Frédéric Donnedieu de Vabres, Chairman of Taxand said, “During 2016, a year where technology is moving faster than any of us ever imagined it could, multinationals will face new pressures for transparency and openness. The impact of BEPS will be felt at an industry and policy level as the proposals begin to change the international tax landscape. We will be exploring the science of 21st Century global tax in Dublin, a hub for progressive, forward thinking entrepreneurs. As part of Taxand’s commitment to deliver quality tax advice, the upcoming conference will combine a blend of client meetings and networking opportunities, while providing a platform to share expertise particular to delegates’ business needs.”
