KPMG TaxWatch


KPMG LLP (KPMG) is pleased to invite you to a 60-minute Webcast on the current state of the Advance Pricing and Mutual Agreement (APMA) program.

John C. Hughes was Acting Director of APMA for nearly a year before recently being confirmed as Director of APMA. John will join KPMG to discuss current goals for APMA and explain what taxpayers can do to help their APAs and competent authority cases run smoothly.

The Webcast will cover:

  • What requirements of Rev. Proc.’s 2015-40 and 2015-41 have potentially caused the most taxpayer compliance difficulty?
  • What changes in Rev. Proc.’s 2015-40 and 2015-41 have potentially contributed the most to APA and competent authority processes?
  • Has there been a BEPS-influenced increase in competent authority cases?
  • What recent efforts have taken place at the APMA to increase efficiency?
