Expert Guidance on Navigating the Digital Economy

The digitalization of the economy presents important challenges for international tax. These challenges relate to how taxing rights on income generated from cross-border activities should be allocated among countries, as well as how digitalization has allowed for the shifting of profit to entities in no or low tax jurisdictions. Other questions include those in the area of indirect taxation associated with the cross-border supply of goods, services and intangibles from online sales.
