Please join the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation, and the Robert D. Burch Center for Tax Policy and Public Finance at the University of California, Berkeley, as they host an international group of economists and lawyers for a discussion on corporate tax reform.
Led by Michael Devereux of the Oxford Centre, this group of international experts has been meeting since 2013 to reconsider the fundamentals of taxing multinational corporations’ incomes and to propose reforms. The group has two main goals: to examine fundamental issues of principle and practice in taxing business profits and allocating taxing rights of those profits among countries, and to evaluate potential reform options. Their proposals range from those requiring marginal change to radically different systems. The group has considered two options in some detail: a residual profit allocation system and a destination-based cash-flow tax. A common feature is that they assign taxing rights partly or fully to the location of relatively immobile factors: shareholders or consumers.
Members of the group will present the group’s ideas to date, and leading figures from government, business, and academia will respond and give their own views on the future of international corporate tax.
