In the past months, all Swiss companies, including Swiss-based HQs, have had to cope with major changes – legislative, economic and fiscal. Our 2015 HQ Conference will explore the impact of these changes on the Swiss market and its historical strengths, and how multinationals have been successful in navigating in this turbulent environment. In particular, we will debate why certain business sectors and/or business models are better equipped than others to deal with these disruptions and achieve targeted results.

We will explore the challenges of globalisation and mobility of talent on centralised business models, and look at the main building blocks of the finance function and how effective Swiss-based HQs are at implementing a sustainable internal control framework. The OECD report on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) is due to be finalised in October. Coupled with the anticipated changes to the Swiss tax regime under Corporate Tax Reform III (CTR III) we will examine how Swiss-based HQs can be best positioned to increase the value-add both locally and internationally.

We will combine plenary sessions on the big topics with more intimate break-out sessions on areas of more specialist interest. As always there will be ample time to network with peers and PwC technical specialists and a relaxed aperitif to close.
