Session information

Global developments - a government perspective (aligning the ducks)


This panel will discuss big global tax issues, such as:

  • What the future holds for the next five years;
  • OECD/G20 Global Pillars 1 and 2;
    • Pillar 1: what are the issues still and what is the most likely
      outcome? How has the change of direction left those keen to
      tax, or reconcile the taxation of, digital operators?;
    • Pillar 2: what is the likely outcome? Where does this leave bona fide tax competition for least developed countries (LDCs) and others?; and
  • The balance of power in terms of initiatives for confirming global tax rules and dealing with perceived abuses.
