Fighting on Multiple Fronts: Cross-Border Disputes and Bilateral Resolution

In this panel we will discuss dispute prevention and dispute resolution mechanisms at the various stages of the tax administrative procedure.
We will start our panel with an up to date report from the IRS on MAP cases, in particular relating to transfer pricing topics, and an outlook on current projects on the domestic as well as the OECD level. The panel will then focus on case studies relevant to multiple jurisdictions, and will explore topics such as joint audits on the basis of the EU Administrative Assistance Directive, permanent establishments and the implementation of the EU Tax Dispute Resolution Directive, and challenging a GAAR in a MAP proceeding.
