Dear friends and colleagues of AOTCA
It is my great pleasure and honor to greet you on the official website for AOTCA conference 2018 in Ulaanbaatar hosted by the Mongolian Association of Certified Tax Consultants (MACTC).
The main theme of the international tax conference this year is “Challenges in implementation of new GAAR Rules under BEPS”.
In the globalization of economy, the issue of international tax avoidance has been in the spotlight. Now, some jurisdictions have introduced GAAR and various aspects of anti-tax avoidance rules are discussed in relation to BEPS.
MACTC presents you a very informative and enlightening program. The participants of the conference will have an opportunity to update on the latest and continuing development of international taxation and also to exchange views and ideas with tax professionals and AOTCA members from other jurisdictions.
Last but not least, I must express my heartfelt respect and appreciation to Ms. Altanzaya Gunsen, President and the members of MACTC for their extraordinary endeavor in planning and preparing the meetings and events.
