DoubleIrish,DutchSandwich,aCaipirinha:InternetTaxationTale

12 November 2015 - A Workshop on Other in João Pessoa, Brazil

Agenda

The interest of governments in understanding and taxing Internet services is escalating. Whereas some countries are interested in fighting international tax-avoidance strategies of multinational companies, others tackle the issue of taxing specific Internet services within their territory.

Due to the novelty of the topic at this venue, the organizers expect to (i) collect the views of different stakeholders, (ii) highlight some of the most important issues pertaining to Internet taxation, (iii) identify proper venues where this matter (iii.a) is being and (iii.b) should be addressed, (iv) brainstorm ways forward (e.g., best practices, formal legal compromises, multilateral and multistakeholder approaches), (v) establish a coalition of stakeholders interested in further research and development on this matter.

Expected taxation topics: Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS), OTTs and telecom services, bitcoin, cloud, data centers, e-commerce, internacional corporate strategies, jurisdiction, taxing/detaxing.
