Hotel "Holiday Inn" Šeimyniškių st. 1, Vilnius

Changes in tax policy in the Baltic States raise questions which of the State would increase or lower its attractiveness for investments, what actions should be taken by business acting in the region and what position will be held by the Tax Authorities when evaluating business structures and transactions performed.

It is important to determine how changes brought by the OECD and the European Commission should be handled and which of them are key to your business.

The following topics are to be covered in the conference:

  • Tax policy amendments in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia starting from 2018: searching for the most attractive jurisdiction.
  • Tax payers’ experience: what could be learned?
  • Major tax risks faced by businesses, recommendations on avoiding tax disputes.
  • What changes are being planned in tax administration?
  • Review of OECD guidelines, initiatives of the European Commission and tax legislation.
  • Waiting for tax practice in Lithuania: how EU Directives are implemented within the EU and what could be already adopted in Lithuania.
