Women of IFA Network of the Netherlands New Year's Seminar

EY Amsterdam
27 February 2024

Following the pandemic and a successful IFA European Region Conference in Amsterdam in July 2023 organized by our branch, the Women of IFA Network (WIN) of the Netherlands is pleased to revive its long-standing WIN New Year's Seminar tradition. We are delighted to invite you to join our seminar that will cover a topic of ever-increasing interest: "Shifting geopolitical panels, intensified competition and a rapidly de-globalising world: The role of Tax and Technology". 

The seminar will start with a keynote speech from Marlies de Ruiter, Partner and Global International Tax Services Policy Leader, EY on the subject. She will then be joined for a lively panel discussion by: 

  • Sezen Tas, Deputy Director-General, Netherlands Tax Administration
  • Angelique Beek - van Doremaele, Director Tax Affairs, ASML 
  • Fleur Marcus, Tax Lead, Versuni (Philips Domestic Appliances)

The seminar will cover inter alia the following items: 

  • What are the global megatrends and how do they influence policymaking at a local, regional and global level?
  • What is the role of the use and generation of technology in shaping local, regional and global competition?
  • Are global/regional rules fit for purpose in a world that is becoming increasingly locally focused?
  • How are the key international and European tax policy setters, i.e., the OECD, UN and European Commission, reacting to this shifting landscape? Are recent legislative tax initiatives, such as Pillars 1 and 2, BEFIT and the TP directive, reflective of their reaction?
  • How are tax administrations and businesses affected by these changes? 
  • What are the possible interactions between tax and technology from a policy and practical perspective as a possible response to this changing landscape?

Subsequently, Ingrid van de Pol-Mensing, Co-Founder, Uncover, will give a presentation on female entrepreneurship and the use of technology in the legal service sector. 

Following the end of the seminar, you are cordially invited to join us for New Year’s drinks and bites.
