Many tax treaties offer the possibility of resolving tax disputes through a Mutual Agreement Procedure (MAP). An increasing number of cross-border tax disputes and new international initiatives, however, ask for considering alternative ways of dispute settlement such as arbitration.
In this seminar, which is highly recommended by TPA Global, several specialists share their ideas and experience with cross-border dispute settlement:
- Prof. Dr H.T.P.M. (Hans) van den Hurk, Professor of European Corporate Income Taxes at Maastricht University
will be chairman and will give us an update about arbitration and the new initiatives developed by OECD and UN.
- Drs. J.T. (Hans) van Egdom wants to share his experiences and will reflect on possible ways for a more efficient process.
- Prof. Dr R.G. (Rainer) Prokisch will discuss arbitration from a German law perspective. Conflict resolution has become more significant in international tax law and has also received more international attention. The EU and the OECD have tried to determine standards for mutual agreement and arbitration procedures. The question arises whether Germany meets those standards currently and what Germany should do to improve conflict resolution procedures.
- H. (Hans) Mooij, LL.M., Chair of the Tribute Foundation for international tax dispute resolution and former Competent Authority in MAP procedures of the Netherlands Ministry of Finance, and former consultant of the OECD and the UN.
- S. (Stella) Raventós Calvo, Tax Lawyer and Chair of the Fiscal Committee of the Confédération Fiscale Européenne.
- C.J.E.A (Eduard) Sporken, LL.M.,Director, KPMG Meijburg & Co, will share his transfer pricing experiences with regard to EU arbitration in relation to Austria, Denmark, France, Germany and the UK and his Mutual Agreement Proceudure experience in relation to Brazil, China, Russia and Kazakhstan.
