We have progressively moved into accepting relatively new business operating models whereby MNEs are providing their goods and/or services to clients, customers and consumers across borders
In operating across borders there is the risk of creating a Permanent Establishment (PE). Sometimes MNEs go a long way as to make sure that they do not run into an unintended PE risk and sometimes MNEs are considering and are effectively deploying a business strategy in having an intended PE in certain locations.
This workshop will cover the current developments, how it may lead to a PE and how to manage PE impact on your organisation. It will also address the impact of the relevant sanctioned BEPS 2.0 considerations regarding the allocation of taxing rights under Pillar One and the minimum tax rate considerations under Pillar Two vis-a-vis the relevance of the PE exposure.
