Host: Daniel Lyons
Presenters: Odile Courjon, Piet Vandendriessche
The OECD has launched new draft international VAT/GST guidelines as part of an initiative to standardise international VAT/GST rules, with input due by 3 May 2013. What are the new guidelines and what impact could they have within the EMEA region? We'll discuss:
- What the new consolidated guidelines contain, including the principle of neutrality.
- Highlights of the OECD Global Indirect Tax meeting in November 2012, including global perspectives on implementing VAT/GST, designing efficient and equitable indirect tax systems, and applying VAT/GST to international trade.
- Potential practical implications for businesses.
