Across the globe, tax is at the top of the agenda in newsrooms and boardrooms alike, owing to a marked rise in the number of cases being contested. Recent research conducted by Baker McKenzie shows an amount of tax globally under dispute so large that it wipes out more than half of the profit growth of the Fortune 500. With tax disputes predicted to continue rising in the coming years, how can corporate taxpayers best prepare to effectively manage the load?

You are invited to join Baker McKenzie practitioners from around the world for a review of this complex scenario at our annual Global Tax Disputes Forum, 7 February 2019. For this year’s event, we are presenting from Italy, a country with an historically high concentration of tax disputes amongst multinational entities.

Join peers and the Baker McKenzie team to explore what the findings of our research mean for taxpayers, as well as the latest developing trends and best practices in global tax disputes and managing tax risk. Key discussions relevant to tax and legal professionals include:

  • Alternative dispute resolution options
  • Resolving transfer pricing disputes
  • Maintaining privacy, confidentiality and privilege during a dispute
  • The impact of US reform on global tax disputes.

View the agenda for the full list of topics.

Who should attend

The conference will be of interest to legal and tax professionals who deal with tax disputes and planning at a local, regional, or global level, including potential criminal ramifications.

One-to-one meetings

Our practitioners will be available for one-to-one meetings the day before the conference, on Wednesday 6 February 2019, to discuss specific issues you may have. Please let us know in advance if you wish to set up a personal appointment as the number of meetings will be limited.
