The Taxation Of The Digitalised Economy – Direct Tax

In March 2018 the OECD released its interim report on the tax challenges arising from digitalisation and, in the same month the European Commission issued draft proposals on the taxation of the digital economy. The European Commission’s proposals include an interim revenue based tax and the introduction of a virtual Permanent Establishment based on digital presence. What are the potential consequences of these recent announcements? We'll discuss:

  • The context of current discussions on digitalisation and underlying issues giving rise to the proposals.
  • The proposed ability to tax companies with significant digital presence, regardless of physical presence.
  • The UK’s recently updated position paper on corporate tax and the digital economy.
  • The implications of the proposals for businesses.
