The Tax Programme of the OECD Korea Policy Centre (KPC) and OECD co-organized the 110th OECD Tax Seminar on October 22-27, 2018, at the Glad Hotel in Seoul, Korea.
As tax avoidance through oversea indirect transfer by multinational enterprises has emerged as a serious problem and requires active measures, the seminar discussed possible countermeasures. The seminar included training sessions on the main contents of the “Toolkit for Source Country Taxation of Cross-Border Indirect Transfers of Assets” to be published by the OECD (‘18.11). Also, recent cases related to overseas indirect transfers, the legislative direction of each country on taxation administration, and desirable counter measures were also discussed.
The seminar was led by Mr. Tomas Balco (OECD), Mr. Cory Hillier (IMF), Mr. Christophe Waerzeggers (IMF), Mr. Sebastian James (World Bank), Mr. Gary White (New Zealand) and was attended by more than 30 tax officials from the Asia-Pacific area.
