Taxing the digital economy: What multinationals should know about recent developments

Webcast Overview:

KPMG LLP (KPMG) is pleased to invite you to a TaxWatch webcast discussing recent developments concerning the taxation of the digital economy. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Union (EU), and several jurisdictions have recently been active concerning the tax challenges presented by the digitalization of the economy.

These actions are expected to affect multinationals across industries—not just digital companies. Professionals from KPMG and KPMG lnternational’s EU Tax Centre provide insights on these developments, what to look for next, and whether your company might be affected. The webcast covers updates on:

  • The OECD’s January 29, 2019 announcement that the Inclusive Framework on BEPS (a group of more than 100 countries and jurisdictions that are collaborating on the implementation of BEPS) agreement on a two-pillar approach for developing a global consensus solution and the OECD's public consulation document released on February 13, 2019 requesting comments by March 1, 2019
  • Recent EU developments, including the recently proposed EU digital advertisement tax
  • Unilateral measures by several countries that have enacted digital services tax rules and considerations for challenging these measures.
