The 11th European Tax Advisers’ Professional Affairs Conference was held in Madrid on 23 November. Under the title “Transparency Trends in Taxation: How to Implement New EU & OECD Mandatory Disclosure Rules”, this year´s conference has been devoted to discuss the implications of the OECD and EU’s initiatives on Mandatory Disclosure Rules, the implementation issues, as well as the specific features of the Directive and the specific hallmarks.
The conference has been structured in two panels (MDR initiatives and implementation of DAC6) of expert speakers from the European Commission, OCDE, consultancy firms and academia. The panels have addressed issues such as how tax administrations and advisers will face the challenging task of implementing this directive and the merits of these policy initiatives for stakeholders across the board.
Mr. Jesús Gascón, Director General of the Spanish Tax Agency, closed the Conference stressing the importance of transparency and good governance not only for taxpayers and tax intermediaries but also for tax administrations.
