Cooperative Compliance Conference 3-4 July 2018
Conference: From Co-operative Compliance to the International Compliance Assurance Programme: More Effective and Efficient Tax Compliance
This two-day conference will take place at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) in Vienna, Austria from Tuesday 3rd July to Wednesday 4th July 2018.
The conference has been organized in the context of the OECD’s recent launch of the International Compliance Assurance Programme (ICAP). The ICAP builds on the domestic concept of co-operative compliance programmes, which have become increasingly popular.
The conference will bring together tax officials, businesses, international and regional organizations and academics from OECD and non-OECD countries with the aim of sharing their views.If you have direct experience with these programmes we would very much appreciate if you could share it with us in advance.
In light of the tax uncertainty surrounding the implementation phase of the BEPS Project, a growing number of countries have either relaunched their co-operative compliance programmes, developed similar initiatives or introduced the concept into their domestic legal systems. At the same time, taxpayers are trying to find new ways in which technologies can help facilitate their compliance.
The aim of this conference is to provide a platform to share the experience of co-operative compliance programmes to date, discuss insights to their design and examine the new multilateral phase, ICAP.
The event is the fifth in a broader project - “Co-operative Compliance: Breaking the Barriers” - a WU Global Tax Policy initiative that began in 2015. From its inception, the project has enabled high-level discussion and debate on how to enhance tax compliance. It has further promoted the concept of co-operative compliance between countries, with a particular focus on African nations.
