9th IBFD International Tax Conference

9th IBFD International Tax Conference

The 9th IBFD International Tax Conference returns to Beijing where, together with tax professionals from government, academic, corporate and advisory bodies, we will explore Tax Issues of Outbound Investment. The 2018 edition of the conference once again provides a unique platform for discussion and clarification from tax experts, as well as insights from SAT officials.

In recent years, China has steadily increased its outbound investment and tried to realize more economic growth outside of the country. Once a decision to invest has been made, there are tax issues that need to be dealt with, such as what the best tax-effective structures for operations are, and aspects like the financing, intellectual property and tax compliance in the country in which the investment will be carried out. The 9th IBFD International Tax Conference will examine the spectrum of international tax issues related to outbound investment and analyse the key points to consider when confronted with the tax aspects of outbound investment.

The conference will not only feature dynamic presentations but IBFD will also celebrate our 80th anniversary.
 
As an independent and not-for-profit leading international tax organization committed to disseminating international tax knowledge, IBFD is pleased to offer free admission to the 9th International Tax Conference.
 
We hope to welcome you all on 8 November 2018 at the Intercontinental Beijing Sanlitun Hotel.
