The European Commission has started State Aid investigations into tax rulings and advanced pricing agreements of U.S. multinationals (such as Apple, Amazon and Starbucks). A heading in The Irish Times stated “Apple warns it may have to pay Irish back-tax. European Commission could force State to recover past taxes, tech giant warns”, while the Financial Times reported “Brussels in crackdown on double Irish tax loophole”.

The European Commission recently enlarged its enquiry into the tax ruling practice under EU State Aid rules to cover all Member States. The Commission will ask all Member States to provide information about their tax ruling practice, in particular to confirm whether they provide tax rulings and if they do, to request a list of all companies that have received a tax ruling from 2010 to 2013. What is going on? What are the legal grounds? Can the European Commission demand payment of tax benefits going back ten years? How can the State Aid risk be reduced? How to fight an investigation of the European Commission? Is the European Commission taking over the OECD-BEPS discussion? Are IP-regimes State Aid?

Time:       12:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

Cost:        $100 for members and $140 for non-members

Location:  Grand Hyatt New York at 109 East 42nd Street, New York, NY
