The discussion related to the Starbucks case and surrounding factors as BEPS, state aid and the position of the Dutch Tax Authorities. Theo commented amongst others on the need for certainty for taxpayers and the difficult (political) climate the professionals at the Tax Authorities are operating in currently
Theo was amongst others invited because of his former role as the head of the Dutch APA-practice and because he has experience on both sides of the table (as tax director of MNEs, key member of the Dutch Transfer price team and in consultancy).
