The Tax and Accounting Conference, organised by ICI, goes virtual this year! It will take place over three days: September 22, September 29 and October 6 from 10AM to 3:30PM (Eastern Standard Time). This series will give you the opportunity to learn the latest information on tax and accounting issues affecting investment companies.

This three-day conference is sponsored by Taxand, the world’s largest independent tax network which ATOZ is a founding member.

On this occasion, Taxand will be organising a Thought Leadership Event on Tuesday 29 September from 10 to 11AM Eastern Time (4 to 5PM, Central European Summer Time) entitled: Withholding tax reclaims in Europe - Show me the money!

During this event, Keith O’Donnell, Managing Partner and Desislava Dimitrova, Director at ATOZ, Taxand Luxembourg, will share the latest developments with regards to article 63 TFEU reclaims in Europe. Keith and Desislava are leaders in the field and have secured several hundred millions of refunds for their clients, including many of the top ranked global fund houses. They will be joined by expert colleagues from around Europe.

The workshop will focus on the emerging technical issues as well as practical experiences from tax authorities and courts around Europe. Keith and Desislava will also discuss the recent refunds received in France, the lessons learned on the way of securing those refunds and ways forward.
