TEI EMEA Autumn Conference

in London, Amsterdam and Bern


State Aid – why and how the recent state aid cases impact Tax work

Dear TEI EMEA Members,

Registration to our TEI EMEA Fall Conference on 9 November 2017 is now open! Lead topic of the conference will be State Aid – why and how the recent state aid cases impact Tax work. We are very happy to be hosted and supported by Taxand.
Please take the opportunity to update your profile in the new TEI Connect. We will share more regular updates through the TEI Connect – EMEA Members area.

In the meantime, let me share some more details on the 9 November 2017 Conference. Due to concerns voiced by a number of members about travelling costs and time restrictions, we would like to use our Fall conference to pilot an alternate format. It is not our intention to drop our well known and appreciated approach of having face-2-face two day conference – which will return for the other conferences of this year. But if the pilot is well received by you all, we would like to use aspects of the pilot to enhance the way TEI EMEA reaches you, more of our members and more often.

Our Fall conference on 9 November will be one day only. Timing has been set in a way that we hope most of you can travel in and out in one day without losing the opportunity for you to engage with your fellow TEI members on practical issues, to network and to pick up a few new ideas.

You can join fellow TEI members at one of three locations: Amsterdam [airport region] in the Netherlands, Bern in Switzerland or London in the UK.

In the morning, we will start with Roundtable sessions – allowing you to engage and exchange view with your fellow TEI members on issues that are relevant to your work now. We will also take some time to update you on recent developments and discuss with you opportunities for groups of TEI members to connect locally going forward. Our sponsor will not be joining for this part.

In the afternoon, Taxand will join us and visually connect the sessions in the three locations so we can have presentations and discussions with all involved. The bulk of the afternoon will be taken up by sessions on State Aid – what it means for Tax in general and whether there are specific considerations to be had for direct and indirect tax.

We are very excited about trying out this new format and hope many of you can join for the Roundtables and the Afternoon sessions. If such a connected setting is successful in connecting with you and sharing information in a meaningful way, we would be able to use the approach to connect better e.g. with our Asia Chapter on issues such as India GST, Chinese Transfer Pricing practice, with colleagues in Dubai on VAT introduction in the GCC or with our Silicon valley chapter on how they deal with the announcement on changes to taxing the digital economy.

Since this is a pilot and only covers one day, the Conference fee for members will be reduced to EUR100 and EUR150 for non-members. The agenda, venue details and registration can be accessed using the menu options on the left.

Looking forward to seeing many of you next week – in person or on screen!

Kind regards,
Anna Theeuwes

TEI EMEA President 2016-2017
