Members of Andersen Global Participate in Tax Policy & Practice Symposium

Tax Policy & Practice Symposium (TCPI), created in 1997, is a non-profit and non-partisan public policy research and educational organization.  TCPI was created to help bring about a better understanding of significant federal tax policies that impact businesses and the national economy through careful study, thoughtful evaluation and open discussion. TCPI is affiliated with The Tax Council, an association established in 1966 for senior level tax professionals who work together to promote sound federal tax policies and a better understanding of our federal tax system. 

TCPI’s 16th Annual Symposium, How Taxes Matter: The Globalization of Tax Policy and Implications for US Economic Growth and Investment, takes place February 12-13, 2015 at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. The agenda, which Ellen Macneil participated in developing, focuses on helping professionals make informed business investment decisions in this evolving global environment where governments are reevaluating tax policies and tax administration to generate revenue while promoting economic growth and job creation.

Ruben van Aarle, Managing Director of Andersen Global member firm, Taxperience, will take part in a panel on European Union State-aid Transfer Pricing which will discuss the impact of increased tax controversy and the European Commission’s state aid investigations on transfer pricing strategies.

Ellen MacNeil leads the Andersen Tax National Tax Office. She has over 30 years experience in tax consulting for major U.S. businesses. Ellen is a member of the board of directors of The Tax Council. She has also served as chair of the ABA Taxation Section’s Tax Accounting Committee and chair of the AICPA’s Tax Accounting Committee. She has chaired the ABA Taxation Section’s Committee on Government Submissions and has also served as a member of the Executive Committee of the AICPA’s Tax Division.

Ruben van Aarle advises a variety of businesses, ranging from early stage companies (often Internet, IT, and technology-driven businesses) to internationally operating SMEs and publicly traded corporations.  Ruben is keen on conceiving original tax solutions and working closely with his clients to implement the solutions efficiently.  Ruben's out-of-the-box way of thinking, which is typical of all partners at Taxperience, clearly manifests itself in his advisory work in the field of direct taxation, specifically relating to tax planning, mergers & acquisitions, restructuring operations, finance structures, transfer pricing and cross-border employment.
