Program Overview

This year's event is once again characterized by the work of the tax auditors from Germany and abroad.


On the first day, after the welcome, we will present our Italian-Bavarian project as a successful model of cross-border cooperation (Tax Audits "senza frontiere"). Not only talking about history and current situation, but the possibilities and limits of a project like this will be shown by the insiders of the project.

Then we will deal with “To P.E. or not to P.E. – Different answers to the same question in Italy and Germany”, a real case about the risk being object of different approaches from two countries.

Crossborder problems do not only exist for companies and not only in Italy. The topic "All at once!" – Tax Audit, MAP and criminal investigation on dual residence” shows how dangerous it can be to have “too many flats in different locations”, based on a real case from Austria.

At the end of day one, auditors of different countries will present a real case of a multilateral control. The lecture "Multilateral Controls – What's Possible, What's Not Possible" focuses on procedural issues, practical specifics and strategic objectives of multilateral controls.


To make day one complete we’ll meet at the BMW-Kegel for music and food. An extraordinary venue with an extraordinary atmosphere, which invites all to a come together and networking.

On the second day we expect you to start with "No risk – no fun? National Tax Compliance Approaches in Comparison ". Everybody talking about compliance, but what does it mean in each country? Four countries will present their systems.

A high-level panel will – after these national approaches to compliance - focus on “The International Compliance Assurance Project of the OECD". Representatives of the OECD, Agenzia delle Entrate, IRS USA, from business, science and jurisprudence will discuss on this issue.

What’s new in international taxation? Representatives of various German (Laender) Finance Ministries will present and comment on the latest news from the IStR.

With the focus on "Joint Audits – MAP/APA: Cooperation Visions of the Future" – a real case and considerations to fix those problems de lege lata and de lege ferenda – we will finish the International Tax Audit Forum Munich 2018.


We expect well-known speakers from Germany and abroad.
Each lecture will be followed by a discussion.
