As governments from OECD/G20 economies work to rewrite many of the fundamental rules of corporate taxation worldwide, executives from a range of global companies will meet with tax experts from the OECD and member governments at the 2014 OECD International Tax Conference, June 2-3 in Washington, D.C. Participants will discuss efforts to address so-called base-erosion and profit-shifting (BEPS), a project that seeks to determine whether, under current tax rules, profits may be allocated to locations different from those where business activity takes place.

Now in its ninth year, the sold-out conference is organized by the United States Council for International Business (USCIB) in cooperation with the 34-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the leading global forum for discussion of international tax policies, along with the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD.

USCIB promotes open markets, competitiveness and innovation, sustainable development and corporate responsibility, supported by international engagement and regulatory coherence. Its members include U.S.-based global companies and professional services firms from every sector of our economy, with operations in every region of the world. With a unique global network encompassing leading international business organizations, USCIB provides business views to policy makers and regulatory authorities worldwide, and works to facilitate international trade and investment.
