Courses / Advanced - The new legal & regulatory framework of tax crimes
Living in a tax transparent world
Course outline
In a globalised economy, the financial sector is increasingly exposed to the risks of tax evasion, tax avoidance and tax fraud. In an effort to prevent and minimize respective tax related risks, the OECD launched over the past 4 years different tax driven initiatives, notably the Common Reporting Standard (hereafter “CRS”) as well as the Base Erosion Profit Shifting (hereafter “BEPS”).
Further to these OECD initiatives, other rules against tax crime have been agreed on at the EU level such as the European Action Plan to fight terrorism financing and the Anti-Tax Avoidance Directives 1 & 2 (“ATADs”) which shall be implemented in domestic legislation by 31 December 2019.
Our experts will share their views on specific Luxembourg legislations such as the 2017 Tax reform. Participants will, at the end of this course, have a high-level and comprehensive understanding of the Luxembourg legislative and regulatory context regarding tax crime.
