Conduit companies

Art.4 of the OECD Model Convention and the Conduit Companies: a Short Preface to the Seminar

Italian International tax law is experiencing a time of unprecedented changes as never before.
The most recent activity of the Revenue service (The Agency) and of the Guardia di Finanza is aiming at assessing the residence in Italy of companies incorporated abroad for tax purposes.
The Guard and the Agency are fighting together against the phenomenon of the so called “Società esterovestite” (that is, “Foreign-dressed companies”: companies incorporated abroad by Italians apparently with the sole scope of avoiding taxes in the Country).
It is well known in Academic literature that this is a widespread issue in Europe and worldwide: form over substance, substance over form.
This seminar shall debate the issue on the very specific perspective of the definition of residence and the most recent anti abuse provisions implemented in Italian Tax Law.

Are they consistent with EU law ?
What is their impact on DTC ?
What is the “state of the art” in other EU countries ?
