Quantera Global co-hosts breakfast briefing

Tax and transfer pricing governance insights for Private Equity firms and Global Multinational companies

DATE: 15 November 2017
Location:  7 Albemarle Street, London 

Quantera Global, Citco Global subsidiary governance services, and Pinsent Masons are proud to invite you to our breakfast seminar on Wednesday 15 November, to share insights on governance given the current tax and transfer pricing environment for Private Equity firms and Global Multinational companies.

Firms in the investment management sector and the Global Multinational companies that deal with holding, acquisition, and finance structures on a day to day basis are facing tax, legal, and regulatory changes like never before.

Changing international tax rules and increased scrutiny by tax authorities and the public require increased attention to governance and operational change to deal with this increased risk. It is more important than ever to address these challenges by having a clear Tax Strategy, developing a workable Tax Control Framework within your organisation, and taking a fresh look at any transfer pricing risks.

During this event, the panel will invite you for a discussion around three elements that are at the heart of these changes:

  • How will the new rules affect your operations?
  • What are the pressures on governance given measures to increase international tax transparency, including Country-by-Country reporting?
  • How running a Tax Control Framework & Transfer Pricing Risk Mitigation can help you in addressing these new risks?
