Welcome to the Spring edition of the EY Quarterly Tax Bulletin which looks at Insurance from a wider European perspective.

In this issue, we reflect on the progress made on the OECD’s multilateral instrument to amend tax treaties, the chances of US tax reform and the current state of play on some of the European Union’s tax initiatives.

Designed for tax professionals working for groups in the insurance sector with operations across the EMEIA area, each quarterly bulletin brings you a selection of short articles and topical news items. Our focus is on tax, legal and regulatory developments.
