ECIPE Lunch Seminar: Competitive Taxation in Europe - New Evidence for EU Tax Policymakers

Taxation
Date: Monday, 14 October 2019 12:15 - 13:45

Venue: ECIPE Office, Av des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels

We will have a panel discussion of how Europe’s tax systems differ and the importance of evaluating the design of corporate tax regimes.

Each EU government takes a unique approach to taxation. Well-designed tax systems can create competitive advantages in some circumstances, while more distortionary systems can have negative impacts on individual and business decisions.

Join us for a discussion of how Europe’s tax systems differ and the importance of evaluating the design of corporate tax regimes. The speakers will highlight recent research on taxation in Europe, the OECD discussion regarding the challenges of digitalisation for corporate tax policy-making and the ways corporate taxes can create an uneven playing field for businesses and citizens in the EU.
