Conference on Improving Tax Compliance in a Globalized World 2016 Rust

  • Conference Call
  • The Insti­tute for Aus­trian and Inter­na­tional Tax Law Vienna, in coop­er­a­tion with the Doc­toral Pro­gram for Inter­na­tional Busi­ness Tax­a­tion and the WU Global Tax Pol­icy Cen­ter, with friendly sup­port of Chris­t­ian Doppler Research Asso­ci­a­tion and the Inter­na­tional Fis­cal Asso­ci­a­tion (IFA), Aus­trian Branch (Wolf­gang Gassner Research Fund for Inter­na­tional Tax Law), are orga­niz­ing a Con­fer­ence enti­tled: “Improv­ing Tax Com­pli­ance in a Glob­al­ized World”. The con­fer­ence will be held in the beau­ti­ful city of Rust (Bur­gen­land, Aus­tria) from June 30 to July 2, 2016 at the See­ho­tel Rust.

    The con­fer­ence will focus on mea­sures to improve tax com­pli­ance. We will dis­cuss dif­fer­ent lev­els of non-​compliance, rang­ing from tax crimes to aggres­sive tax plan­ning. We will exam­ine in which areas tax evasion/​tax avoid­ance is still high and what has already been done to reduce the tax gap. We will deal with domes­tic and cross-​border tax eva­sion but con­cen­trate on income and cor­po­rate income taxes.

    The goal of this con­fer­ence is to learn from each other, to see which mea­sures work in which con­text and whether such mea­sures can serve as an exam­ple for our respec­tive coun­tries. We will also analyse the chal­lenges that lie ahead of us and try to find ideas to over­come exist­ing and future prob­lems. We are grate­ful that out­stand­ing experts from around 30 juris­dic­tions have agreed to present their country’s present legal situation.
