IFA Comprehensive Seminar on the Implementation of the Multilateral Convention (MLI) and Other BEPS Related Issues

26 june, 2017, Irpin, Ukraine

June 26, 2017 IFA Ukraine in partnership with University of State Fiscal Service of Ukraine was pleased to host the first lecture of IFA travelling lectureship programme (TLP), which was a part of IFA services to its Members, on the implementation of the Multilateral Convention (MLI).

More than 100 jurisdictions have concluded negotiations on a Multilateral Instrument (MLI) that would swiftly implement a series of tax treaty measures to update international tax rules and lessen the opportunity for tax avoidance by multinational enterprises. The new instrument would transpose results from the OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project into more than 2000 tax treaties worldwide. The MLI was signed in Paris by 67 countries and jurisdictions on June 7, 2017.

Professor Guglielmo Maisto delivered the lecture, which was interactive in nature, combining lecture and discussion, on 1) Background to the BEPS Project and the multilateral instrument; 2) General structure and mechanics of the multilateral instrument; 3) Ukraine treaty practice vs. BEPS; and 4) Beneficial owner.Prof. Guglielmo Maisto shared his in-depth theoretical knowledge on MLI topic, focusing also on key points Ukraine should take into account when dealing with MLI accession process. This part was especially appreciated by Ukrainian state tax officials present at the event.

The speakers' panel was also joined by IFA Chair Subcommittee on Regional Activities Mr Brian Schneiderman, representing IFA Executive Committee at the high level and showcasing IFA profile to over 60 lecture attendees, representing academia, state authorities, judicial power and professional services firms.
