A good understanding of the tax rules is key for any business and is particularly important in the reinsurance industry. Ensuring having the right knowledge both (i) in direct taxes (including Transfer Pricing) and (ii) in VAT can help to anticipate and manage tax risks upfront and may open the door to a reduction of processing costs and other charges linked to administrative demands.

There is increasing complexity of national, European regulations and international legislation such as the OECD BEPS plan addressing Base Erosion and Profit Shifting ("BEPS"), along with a growing volume of court decisions on the subject. VAT rules are not easier to deal with: scope of exemptions, mitigation strategies, reporting requirements are high on the agenda of tax directors and CFOs. PwC's Academy is happy to offer you an innovative training session which gets you up to speed on the main tax considerations and issues for the insurance industry in Luxembourg.

This training includes future expected changes in the legislation as applicable as well as the regulatory changes that could trigger unexpected tax consequences when business models and fee structures are revisited.

By the end of this training, the participants will be able:
1) to have a good understanding of the current Luxembourg taxation of the reinsurance industry including the aspects linked to the reinsurance entity itself, the distribution and investment activity in order to handle tax matters linked to the reinsurance industry methodically;
2) identify the upcoming tax challenges the reinsurance industry would face;
3) develop a critical mindset with respect to tax aspects linked to the reinsurance industry.


The course will focus on the following:

  • Taxation of the reinsurance entity itself (i.e. corporate tax, VAT and TP aspects)
  • Taxation of the distribution activity (e.g. development of the digital distribution on related tax impact)
  • Taxation of the investments activity
  • Impact of EU Pillar 2 on reinsurance entities
  • Expecting tax regulations/legislation that may impact the reinsurance industry
