Corporate Tax Responsibility

 

Time:               19 August, 14:30 – 16:00 (Registration from 14:15)

Venue:             Danske Bank Wealth Management, Parallelvej 17, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby

Registration:   Please register by email to dansif@dansif.dk by 16 August.

 

The environment concerning corporate tax planning is constantly shaped and challenged by a multitude of legislative initiatives as well as growing stakeholder expectations with increasingly concrete suggestions for what responsible tax practices would look like. Furthermore, ESG ratings such as FTSE4Good and Responsible 100 are beginning to include tax as an element of their indicator sets. At the same time, emerging academic research is linking greater tax transparency to higher shareholder value.

 

Dansif invites its members to an event to explore the complexity of corporate tax responsibility. The event will engage key expert speakers in a discussion about corporate tax behavior, responsibility and transparency with a focus on investors’ relevance and possibility to engage on this topic.

 

The event will follow the Chatham House Rules to encourage frank and more in-depth discussions that can help shed light on the subject.

Sara Jespersen, Project Manager – Tax and Development, IBIS

 

The Tax Dialogue is an initiative by IBIS that aims to understand the challenges and opportunities around tax and corporate responsibility for the private sector through a multi-stakeholder dialogue.

Screening portfolio companies for tax-related risks

Izabela Jasicka, Research Analyst, GES

 

Multinational companies have faced severe criticism over their alleged aggressive tax avoidance practices and since they do not operate in isolation this could have implications for investors. Izabela will elaborate on GES’ position on corporate tax avoidance with reference to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the OECD base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) action points. She will also present GES’ independent screening and evaluation methodology, which helps identify severe violations by multinationals, and GES’ proactive engagement with companies on their tax strategies.
