The finalisation of the BEPS project has provided governments with materials, tools and blueprints for reapplying the basic principles of international taxation like economic substance, permanent establishment and value creation. Yet it is far from clear how this large-scale project should be implemented: how to shape the new provisions so that they are fit for purpose? How can the implementation effort be coordinated internationally and achieve its political objectives? And how can one assure that the reconstruction does not lose sight of the taxpayers who are going to be subject to this new regime.
The conference is a co-operation of the University of Luxembourg and the ECJ Task Force of the CFE.
For the third time the CFE (Confédération Fiscale Européenne) is reaching out for academic excellence in European taxation. In memoriam to an exceptional academic mentor, to recognize Albert Rädler's highly renown contribution to the field of taxation within Europe and to follow his European academic spirit, former CFE President Stephen D.G. Coleclough initiated in 2013 the CFE Award Albert J. Rädler Medal to encourage outstanding academical achievements.
On 13 November 2015, the CFE, together with two other international professional bodies of tax advisers, together representing more than 500,000 tax advisers worldwide, presented their joint proposal for a Model Taxpayer Charter.
