Understanding the Global Tax Arena - Risk & Regulation

TCPI 8th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium
February 01 - 02, 2007
The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.
Program Managers: Ernst & Young LLP and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP
Globalization is the norm for doing business today, and with it has come global tax exposure, disclosure and multi-jurisdictional scrutiny. Companies the world over are grappling with tax risk and related controls.  The U.S. was a first adopter with Sarbanes-Oxley. The European Union followed with its 8th Directive, and now Japan, Canada and others have either adopted or are planning to adopt new controls regimes. Additionally, companies face new levels of scrutiny and risk around transparency of their tax positions, penalties and enforcement, and multi-jurisdiction information sharing.

Responding to feedback from last year's attendees, the 8th Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium will bring together some of the world’s leading global authorities from government, regulatory agencies, business, law, accounting, and academia to discuss topics that can help you do business in this new global arena.  The speakers will discuss policy level issues including the global development of legislative and regulatory approaches to address aggressive tax positions, tax controls, and financial reporting. The speakers will also discuss corporate strategies for dealing with the new environment, and will address many of the practical risk and regulation issues facing tax departments today.
The Symposium is designed for CFOs, VPs of finance, VPs of tax, corporate tax directors, government tax professionals, tax counsels, attorneys, managers, accountants, corporate controllers, treasurers and others with an advanced level of tax knowledge.
No other prequesites or advanced preparation are required.
