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), 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. 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.  

The conference will be preceded by a DIBT Doctorate workshop which is open to international PhD students in this area to present their research. The DIBT Doctorate workshop is open to everybody to attend. Please read more HERE.         

In order to have lively and high level discussions, the number of participants is limited. If you are interested in participating, please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please find the invitation and application form below:
