ITS PE Webcast Series Episode One The Changing PE Threshold

 
 8 June 2017, 3:00 PM CET

 


Preventing the artificial avoidance of Permanent Establishment (“PE”) status is one of the key topics addressed by the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting ("BEPS") package.

In this webcast series PwC specialists will address the practical implications that a reduction in the PE threshold will have for multinational corporations and will provide an insight, through examples, on the challenges and practical actions that can be taken to manage PE in the post-BEPS world.

The webcast series will provide a mix of technical updates and analysis, practical experience and local country expertise around topics such as profit attribution to a PE, direct tax consequences of a PE and the broader impact that the new rules will have on an increasingly global and mobile workforce.  Critically, it will give you the chance to raise questions directly to our PE specialists.

This introductory episode will set the stage for our ongoing discussion of PE in the new tax environment and will work through practical examples being faced by multinational corporations, addressing questions such as:

- What are the main developments in the definition of PE in the international environment?
- Walk though practical examples to demonstrate how the changes related to: (1) fixed place of business, (2) auxiliary and preparatory exceptions, (3) independent and dependent agent, (4) anti-fragmentation and contract splitting are likely to work in practice and potential risk areas.    
- Assess how PE definition and interpretation may vary by local jurisdiction, taking Poland and Spain as examples to identify the impact this will have on a multinational’s approach to international business.
- Provide an update on the multilateral instrument as it relates to PE.
