Annual Forum of the Confédération Fiscale Européenne (CFE): “Information across borders in Indirect and Direct Tax”

3/03/2010 -

The annual Forum of the Confédération Fiscale Européenne (CFE) on “Information across borders in Indirect and Direct Tax” will take place on Thursday 15 April 2010 from 9:00 hrs to 17:15 hrs at the Representation of Saxony-Anhalt to the European Union, Boulevard Saint Michel 80, 1040 Brussels.

The overall aim is to look at the developments that have taken place in the past 12 months to bring about greater exchange of information across borders, greater transparency within borders and a willingness to pursue taxation liabilities across borders more effectively. While the debate usually focuses on fighting fraudulent practices and restoring public finances, the impacts of these initiatives on businesses are often considered less closely. Those include a threat to confidentiality of business data and to the principle of fair proceedings as well as possibly imposing administrative burdens on businesses which urgently need to grow in the wake if the economic crisis.

The Forum seeks to examine the impact of the desire for greater information both in direct tax (morning session) and indirect tax (afternoon session) matters.
