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.
Please find below the CFE press release related to the joining of CNDCEC as a new CFE member:
Recently adopted or proposed initiatives at international and EU level to increase transparency in taxation (the exchange of bank account and other financial information, country by country reporting in annual reports and transfer pricing documentation, tax planning disclosure rules, mandatory exchange of information on tax rulings) will provide tax administration with large amounts of taxpayer data. An efficient use of IT will provide tools for risk assessment, targeting tax audits and countering tax avoidance.
