Following the recent release of a proposal from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) reflecting its latest work to address tax challenges of the digitalization of the economy, KPMG will examine the topic during a live audio webcast, “Taxing the Digital Economy: OECD Proposed Pillar One Unified Approach,” on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. (ET).


Tax, financial, and other business professionals interested in attending the webcast can register here. Continuing professional education (CPE) credit is available to U.S. participants who meet the eligibility requirements.

Other speakers will include Stephen Blough and Jesse Eggert, both principals in the KPMG’s WNT practice.
