The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Remarkable Developments to IRS Advance Pricing Agreement Process: What Lies Ahead in 2016 and Beyond

New York, NY, September 21, 2016 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Remarkable Developments to IRS Advance Pricing Agreement Process: What Lies Ahead in 2016 and Beyond Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, September 29, 2016 @ 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET).

Event Synopsis:

On August 12, 2015, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released the long awaited substantial revision to the revenue procedure governing the process for obtaining advance pricing agreements (APAs). An Advance Pricing Agreement allows taxpayers to obtain agreement from the relevant tax authorities regarding the proper treatment of their transfer pricing issues, thereby reducing significantly the transfer pricing compliance burden going forward. The final APA revenue procedure includes a much more robust process that reflects the IRS’ twenty-plus years of experience negotiating agreements with both taxpayers and treaty partners.

In this Live Webcast, a notable panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as the implications of the revised procedures to taxpayers looking to access the IRS Advance Pricing Agreement Process. Drawing on their experience in both the public and private sector, the panel will help the audience identify and better understand the important issues that arise during the process of obtaining an APA, and discuss their recommended best practices for using the process efficiently and effectively.

Key topics include:
· Revenue Procedure 2015-41
· Implications of the BEPS initiative to the U.S. Transfer Pricing Regime
· Advantages and Disadvantages of the Final Revenue Procedure
· Bilateral and Multilateral APAs
· Best Practices
