The taxation of the digital economy is one of the focus areas of the OECD’s BEPS project, and many countries in the Middle East and Africa are increasingly introducing changes to their tax rules or considering avenues for imposing taxes in relation to digital economy earnings. It is critical for companies to fully understand the local tax regimes across the region and the impact of global developments on the future of taxation of digital services.
During our whole day Middle East and Africa Digital Tax Seminar, our tax experts from the Middle East, Africa and Europe will lead interactive discussions around:
- the global tax reform initiatives driven by the OECD;
- the local issues and trends in key countries in the Middle East and North, West, East and South Africa;
- the key global developments in other emerging jurisdictions; and
- the practical challenges and experiences in dealing with the evolving regimes for taxation of digital services.
The full agenda can be viewed here.
The seminar is suitable for tax, finance and legal professionals and senior business executives.
