The EU and the US before the New Global Challenges: Trade and International Taxation from a Transatlantic Perspective


Friday, October 21, 2016, 11:00am to 12:30pm


27 Kirkland Street Cambridge, MA 02138, Lower Level Conference Room, Busch Hall

We are currently living one of the most fascinating moments in the history of international taxation, which are of interest also for understanding the general EU-US relations. Traditionally, the US and EU set their own agendas, without great care for what was going on, on the other side of the Atlantic. After the BEPS (Base erosion and profit shifting) project and the follow-up measures implementing it in part or full within each of the two blocks, things have changed dramatically. Many changes on one of the sides have intriguing and complex implications on the other side, many of them with a potentially powerful impact in a number of issues as: budget, trade, etc. Recent EU State Aid investigations on some US multinationals are merely an example of what could come next.

This seminar is aimed to address this new reality, shedding light into the new tax dynamics between the EU and the US and anticipating the tax challenges
that both blocks will face in the near future.
