Recent and Pending Cases at the CJEU on Direct Taxation, 16-18 November 2017

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 had 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 16th Novem­ber 2017 with a wel­come re­cep­tion. The work­ing ses­sions will be held all day on 17th and 18th Novem­ber 2017 at WU (Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness). The par­ti­cip­a­tion fee for the con­fer­ence is EUR 1,200.--. A waiver of the par­ti­cip­a­tion fee may be gran­ted to pro­fess­ors and other re­search­ers who are em­ployed at a uni­versity or other aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions (wherever located) and have been en­gaged in re­search activ­it­ies in In­ter­na­tional/European tax law.
