American Bar Association to host international tax trends conference through webinar series

WASHINGTON, June 1, 2020 – The American Bar Association Section of Taxation will hold virtually its 20th Annual U.S and Europe Tax Practice Trends Conference, with seven webinars beginning Tuesday, June 2, and continuing weekly through July 7. The webinar series replaces the April international tax meeting in Munich, Germany, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference is co-sponsored by the International Bar Association Taxes Committee and the International Fiscal Association-USA Branch.

A host of speakers will focus on tax practice trends for multinational corporations and their international advisers, and participants will gain insight into how government tax officials may view the international tax landscape in light of developments that impact corporate taxpayers.

The seven webinars scheduled (each of which will begin at 11 a.m. ET) are:

  • June 2 – “What Private Wealth Professionals Should Know About International Tax Transparency”
  • June 3 – “Dealing with the Good and the Bad in Inbound Investments”
  • June 9 – “DAC 6: New Transparency Requirements in Europe”
  • June 16 – “Latest Tax Developments Affecting Private Investment Funds”
  • June 23 – “OECD Financial Transactions Report”
