Berwick Partners and Odgers Berndtson held a Breakfast event for CFO’s and global tax leaders at our offices on Friday 14th March.
Our guest speaker, Pascal Saint-Amans spoke about the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting programme (BEPS). He discussed progress to date and outlined the various consultation documents expected to be released.
Pascal spoke about how he presented the initiative to the G20 summit in Mexico in 2012. The initiative very quickly won the support of the participating countries, agreeing that any changes needed to be implemented swiftly in order to be successful.
Pascal asked for support, encouraging and welcoming comments by organisations, advisors and individual tax professionals. He informed the group about a series of webcasts which will update people on developments with the initiative. Furthermore he invited the group to attend the OECD meetings in Paris, where opinions, comments and suggestions will be welcome on how best to implement BEPS.
We are delighted Pascal could join us and made a technical topical extremely interesting and informative.
