The international tax scene has changed significantly in terms of transparency and tax avoidance, while additional changes in the tax regimes and tax legislation are expected in the years to come. To this end, Baker Tilly Greece organised a successful Tax Conference, at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, on 'Current and Expected Fiscal Developments in Greece and on a Global Level"
The Conference was attended by prominent Greek business personalities, who had the opportunity to be informed about the latest tax developments, by professionals of Baker Tilly and MK Legal Law Offices. The areas discussed, included among others, the automatic exchange of information by banks and other financial institutions, the efforts by the EU and the OECD to combat tax avoidance, as well as information on tax audits and the provisions for wealth registry in Greece.
Mr Neofytos Neofytou, Head of Tax Services of Baker Tilly in South East Europe commented ‘’The Conference’s aim is to inform the Greek businessmen on the changes made and those expected to be made in the above mentioned areas and to consider possible ways to change the tax planning of companies which operate locally and internationally through the rational treatment of developments in the field of transparency and tax practice''.
It is worth mentioning that Baker Tilly in South East Europe commenced its operations in Greece in 2015 through offices in Athens and recently expanded its operations by opening an additional office in Thessaloniki. With a workforce of over 50 people, Baker Tilly Greece offers a wide range of audit, tax and advisory services.
