Improving Tax Compliance in a Globalized World, Rust (2016)

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), has organized the conference entitled:

“Improving Tax Compliance in a Globalized World”,

which was held in the city of Rust (Burgenland, Austria) from June 30 to July 2, 2016.

The conference focused on measures to improve tax compliance. Different levels of non-compliance were discussed, ranging from tax crimes to aggressive tax planning. The conference examined in which areas tax evasion/tax avoidance is still high and what has already been done to reduce the tax gap. Domestic and cross-border tax evasion was covered with a special emphasis on income and corporate income taxes. The goal of this conference was to learn from each other, to see which measures work in which context and whether such measures can serve as an example for respective countries. Challenges for the future were examined and ideas to overcome existing and future problems explored.  We are grateful that outstanding experts from around 30 jurisdictions joined the conference to present their country’s present legal situation.  

The conference was preceded by a DIBT Doctorate workshop which was open to international PhD students in this area to present their research.
