The 7th CFE Professional Affairs Conference will deal with three aspects of tax transparency, currently discussed at EU and OECD level: These are corporate country-by-country reporting, mandatory disclosure of tax avoidance schemes and “cooperative compliance” in the relationship between taxpayers and their advisers and the tax administration.
For the second time the CFE (Confédération Fiscale Européenne) is reaching out for academic excellence in European taxation. Initiated by former CFE President Stephen D.G. Coleclough the Award is not only aiming to encourage outstanding academical achievements but also to recognize Professor Albert J. Rädler’s highly renowned and ground-breaking contribution to the field of taxation within Europe.
The EU´s fight against tax evasion and avoidance must not touch on the taxpayers´ fundamental rights, must keep their compliance effort reasonable, should not loose sight of the original aim to eliminate double taxation and must not endanger the EU´s competitiveness. The EU should respect the role of tax advisers in ensuring compliance and defending taxpayer´s rights.
For the fourth time, International Tax Review issued the Tax Controversy Leaders Guide with the aim of helping taxpayers to identify controversy specialists in their jurisdiction who possess the broad skillset required to help them cope with the range of challenges they face from revenue authorities.
We are delighted to announce that Dick Barmentlo, CFE Chairman of the Professional Affairs Committee has been awarded as one of the top tax dispute resolution lawyers / advisers for the Netherlands. Congratulations!
