As a consequence of the internationalisation of taxation systems, tax advisers are increasingly required to comply with not only the laws of their own jurisdiction, but also the laws of other jurisdictions and rules set by supranational bodies and imported into domestic law.


The speaker will address two emerging international issues: the proposal developed by the OECD for requiring reporting of arrangements designed to avoid the operation of the Common Reporting Standard and disclosures thereunder, and the requirements for maintenance of data security and data correction under European Union Law.
