In recent years, Brazil has taken significant steps towards becoming a member of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). As part of this process, the country has implemented new transfer pricing rules that aim to align its tax practices with international standards. However, this move has not been without its challenges and implications for Brazil’s major trading and investment partners. The panel will examine the effects of these rules on multinational corporations and investors, with experts offering a diverse range of insights. Join us for this enlightening exploration of Brazil’s OECD journey and its broader global economic impact.
