The Changing Tax Landscape in the Middle East and Impact of the Global Minimum Tax

Event | 18 October 2023 | 9:00 am – 6:00 pm GST

The global taxation of international businesses is in the midst of a monumental shift with great relevance and impact on the Middle East, leading to significant legislative reforms to the tax regime across the region.

We are delighted to invite you to the Baker McKenzie Middle East Tax Forum in Dubai on Wednesday, 18 October 2023 – a full day of interactive discussions on tax updates across the Middle East and a special focus on the impact of global tax policy developments such as Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 (Global Minimum Tax).

We have assembled a panel of tax experts from the UAE, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and Egypt together with our international team of Pillar 2 experts from the US and Europe, who will provide you with the latest insights on regional and global tax developments. The sessions will cover a diverse range of topics, including but not limited to the basic building blocks of the Global Minimum Tax, recent market trends and activities, key tax cases, UAE Corporate Tax (CT) developments, changes to the KSA tax regime and the tax environment in Egypt. In addition to the various technical discussions, the Forum will also provide ample opportunities for networking and informal conversations with our experts and your peers, including a closing cocktail reception. The full event programme and speaker lineup will be communicated in due course.

Our Baker McKenzie tax experts will also be available for one-on-one meetings to discuss specific tax developments and issues including the impact of Pillar 2 on your business and how to best prepare for its imminent introduction.
