The world changed in 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic circling the globe, unprecedented containment measures deployed across countries, and the resulting global economic downturn. Governments, businesses, and tax departments have all been reacting to new challenges on an almost daily basis. At the same time, we have seen a dramatic rise of social activism in the United States and elsewhere, with widespread calls for real action on racial justice, inequality of opportunity, and climate change. These developments and the evolving responses to them have long-term implications, both direct and indirect, for all aspects of tax.
Even when we get back to normal, it won’t be the same normal. The circumstances of the crisis have accelerated long-standing evolutionary change in some areas and given rise to sudden transformational change in other areas. Tax systems, tax administrations, and tax departments are all adapting in real time to the new world order.
The 2021 program will explore the full range of tax implications of the global disruptions of 2020, from shifts in tax and economic policy to changes in global business operations to managing the tax function with more responsibilities and fewer resources. Looking ahead through a post-election lens, the program will focus on the advances that can come from embracing the opportunities for realignment and reprioritization that are arising from this period of disruption.
Join tax leaders from business, government and academia for TCPI’s annual symposium as we prepare for the future of tax in 2021 and beyond. Key discussion areas will include:
- The economic outlook, the deficit environment, and the role of monetary and fiscal policy
- Changing global business models
- The evolution – or revolution – in global tax policy
- Tax administration in the digital age
- The challenges and opportunities arising from changing workforce dynamics
- The evolution of tax department management
- The development of new taxes that raise revenue while also furthering other policy objectives
- The role of tax in the growing emphasis on corporate social responsibility and contribution to sustainable value
