Conference: New BEPS-compliant Intellectual Property tax regime in Luxembourg


You certainly heard about the new IP tax regime voted in Luxembourg. However, do you know what it means for your business?

This regime deals with complex concepts such as legal qualification of IPs, compliance with the OECD BEPS Action 5, management of a nexus ratio with eligible expenditures, application of transfer pricing principles deriving from Luxembourg domestic law and OECD guidelines, …

FEDIL has strongly advocated for the introduction of a new IP tax regime since the decision was taken to abolish the former regime in 2016.

Now we are committed to provide a comprehensive view to our members with the help of Luxembourg Tax and IP experts, namely Deloitte Luxembourg and the Office Freylinger.

We are pleased to invite you to a conference on the new BEPS-compliant IP tax regime in Luxembourg, which will take place on Monday, 7 May 2018 at 14h30 in the Chamber of Commerce Conference Center (room C2) 7, rue Alcide de Gasperi in Luxembourg/Kirchberg.

The objective is to provide an update on the key tax and legal aspects of the new IP regime covering:

  • Legal qualification of the IPs;
  • Key changes introduced by OECD BEPS Action 5 and their impact on existing IP structures;
  • Separation between qualifying and non-qualifying assets and related income under the new regime;
  • Practical aspects regarding the tracking and documentation of eligible expenditures for the nexus ratio;
  • Key transfer pricing and substance considerations; and
  • Sharing perspective of the application of the Luxembourg IP regime to the Luxembourg industry and innovative start-ups.
