Berlin, October 19, 2016: AmCham Germany’s Tax Committee met with Dr. Mathias Middelberg, MdB, CDU/CSU-Bundestagsfraktion, and Dr. Christian Schleithoff, Leiter des Referats Grundsatzfragen Internationale Steuerpolitik, Bundesministerium der Finanzen to discuss tax policy issues. The main topics discussed were the current developments with regard to Country-by-Country-Reporting towards a public reporting as well as the implementation of BEPS in Germany and the EU. While Mr. Middelberg, MdB, focused his discussion on the public hearing in the financial committee of the German Bundestag on the "Entwurf eines Gesetzes zur Umsetzung der Änderungen der EU-Amtshilferichtlinie und von weiteren Maßnahmen gegen Gewinnkürzungen und -verlagerungen", Mr. Schleithoff provided a broad but concise overview of the developments in international tax policy and tax law. We thank our guest speakers for the open dialogue and hope to continue the discussion at a later point.

The meeting was kindly hosted by our member company Pricewaterhouse Coopers AG.
