In advance of the event, Delano spoke with Keith O’Donnell, managing partner at Atoz Tax Advisors. He moderates the “Corporate taxation in Europe: Key trends and developments of relevance for Luxembourg management companies” panel, Tuesday 21 March at 4pm.
Aaron Grunwald: What do you want the audience to get most from the “Corporate taxation in Europe: Key trends and developments of relevance for Luxembourg management companies” session?
Keith O’Donnell: An understanding of how many initiatives are still being proposed by the EU commission affecting corporate tax and which initiatives may actually lead to change.
From your point of view, what are the most challenging tax topics that mancos need to address this year?
Dealing with Atad 3, if and when it arrives, and dealing with greater focus on transfer pricing.
What aspect of European corporate taxation are you most optimistic about at the moment?
Pillar 2 will be interesting and it’s good that it finally got done. To say I’m optimistic about it might be a stretch, however.
Aside from your own talk at the Alfi event, which session are you most looking forward to hearing, and why?
Asset servicing 2.0 looks interesting [editor’s note: Tuesday 21 March at 2:45pm]. I’m curious to hear about retailisation of alternative products in particular.
