Baker McKenzie's 2018 Asia Pacific Tax Litigation Seminar is one of the Firm's yearly Tax flagship event held across Asia Pacific.
For this year, we at Baker McKenzie wanted to design a bespoke event that would bring to our best clients in Singapore the latest developments on tax disputes and controversy trends, recent policies adopted by authorities, new transfer pricing documents and managing tax disputes.
The seminar will be focusing on the importance of these developments and how you can manage your business strategies given the increasing cross-border tax audits and dispute issues. You can expect that it will be an insightful, targeted and interactive seminar.
Our tax lawyers and economists will discuss a number of key issues over the course of this event, including:
Recent developments in the tax litigation sector
You will learn about the latest updates on tax disputes and controversy trends, recent policies adopted by authorities, and case law updates in the region. We will also provide an overview of the tax litigation processes of various Asian countries, including key do’s and don’ts in managing a tax dispute.
Defending Transfer Pricing positions
Given the recent impact of transfer pricing on tax litigation worldwide, this session will also cover how to defend transfer pricing documents with a focus on the new requirements that have recently been introduced by OECD BEPS (Local File, Master File, and Country by Country File).
Managing Tax Audits and Disputes in the Age of Transparency
The implementation of tax transparency measures globally has had a significant impact on the way tax authorities now audit and challenge taxpayers’ positions. During this seminar, we will look at how tax authorities have made use of exchange of information (EOI) in tax audits and disputes, and how countries have supported their treaty partners in such endeavours. We will discuss the scope of the EOI regime, the possible legal challenges one can mount against EOI (if any), and protective measures one may take in managing tax disputes in this environment.
