The tax landscape has evolved over the last decade. There has been a perceived lack of trust in large businesses and a concern that globalisation has benefited larger companies rather than the population at large. The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated inequalities and public deficits, with governments facing the dual challenge of responding to emergencies and addressing the economic fallout. This has ultimately led to calls for greater transparency and reforms of international tax rules including OECD Pillar 1 and 2, EU public country by country reporting and more.
With the changing business environment, volatility in the energy markets, and tightening of the financial markets, large multinational companies (MNCs) have been forced to quickly adapt and innovate.
Join this European Business Tax Forum (EBTF) hybrid conference with the support of Euractiv, to discuss the role and resilience of European MNCs in contributing to public finances and the social welfare system during the pandemic and recovery thereof.
Questions to be discussed include:
- What is the current level of total tax contributions paid by MNCs following the pandemic? How has it changed compared to previous years?
- What have the policy responses been with regards to MNCs and taxation in the post-Covid pandemic environment with rising energy prices and inflation?
- What is the link between tax and sustainability?
The event will also mark the launch of the following EBTF’s studies:
- 5th edition of the European TTC study (conducted in collaboration with PwC UK)
- Sustainability & Taxation study (conducted in collaboration with the University of St Gallen)
