Recent and Pending Cases at the Court of Justice of the European Union on Direct Taxation, Vienna, 8-10 November 2018

At this con­fer­ence, we ex­am­ine and dis­cuss cases on the in­ter­pret­a­tion of the fun­da­mental freedoms in re­spect of dir­ect tax­a­tion that are cur­rently pend­ing at the CJEU or have re­cently been de­cided. We not only in­tend to ana­lyse pend­ing cases and their im­port­ance to the EU Mem­ber States and third coun­tries, but also shed light on CJEU de­cisions which have been re­cently de­cided and dis­cuss their back­ground and rel­ev­ance for the fu­ture. The cases and their back­ground will be in­tro­duced to the audi­ence by key­note speak­ers.

Par­ti­cipants are then ex­pec­ted to com­ment briefly on how the judg­ments will in­flu­ence the do­mestic law of their re­spect­ive home coun­tries, how possible judg­ments might be im­ple­men­ted into the na­tional legal sys­tems or if there will be no need for legal ad­just­ments at all. There­fore, we ask all par­ti­cipants to pro­cure an in-depth pre­par­a­tion of the rel­ev­ant cases from the point of view of the do­mestic law of their home coun­tries.

The con­fer­ence starts on 8th Novem­ber 2018 with a wel­come re­cep­tion. The work­ing ses­sions will be held all day on 9th and 10th Novem­ber 2018 at WU (Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness).
