The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), Queen Mary University of London, is hosting a public seminar in Paris on: Taxation in a Digitalised Era: Challenges and Considerations

The digitalisation of the economy is considered a major driver of economic growth and innovation. At the same time, the digital economy poses challenges for the application of the current international tax rules, due to its reliance on intangible assets, the active user involvement and massive use of data, and the spread of multi-sided business models, leading to a misalignment between the place where the profits are taxed and the place where the value is created. These major tax policy concerns are addressed at an international, EU and regional level. The OECD has recently published its Action 1 interim report in the context of its OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project and the European Commission has issued two Proposals for Directives providing for interim and long-term solutions for a fair taxation of the digital economy, while individual states proceed to the announcement and/or adoption of unilateral legislative measures. Within this context, we intend to explore whether and how the international tax principles need to be revisited and evaluate the efficacy of the current international tax policy proposals from both an academic and business perspective.

The presentations will be in English. Questions may be asked in either English or French.
