Further details about the talk and about Professor Christians are set out below.

The meeting will be at 14:00 British Summer Time.

The log-in is:

OUTLINE OF TALK “How Pillar 1 redraws the the global tax base map: a look at the march toward consensus” The OECD continues its mandate to reallocate the global profits of certain digital economy firms for tax purposes. Combining the OECD ’s own impact analysis with independent research, it is now possible to draw a very rough sketch of how Pillar 1 would accomplish this, and therefore to see how firms and nations are likely to fare under the OECD Secretariat’s preferred approach. Even so, it is not clear that there will be enough time for all Inclusive Framework members to move from rough sketch to policy certainty in time to make decisions about whether the Secretariat’s approach constitutes a mutually beneficial consensus. In this presentation I will walk through the technical specs of Pillar 1 with an example to demonstrate its policy implications.

PROFESSOR CHRISTIANS ’ BIOGRAPHY Allison Christians is the H. Heward Stikeman Chair in the Law of Taxation at the McGill University Faculty of Law where she teaches and writes on national, comparative, and international tax law and policy.
