Global Tax Policy Conference 2017

Tax Policy after MLI and CCCTB, what can be expected?

Chairman: Prof. Dr Hans van den Hurk (Maastricht University)

Since 2014, Maastricht University annually organizes the Global Tax Policy seminar. The global tax environment continues facing more changes and challenges. For business and for governments a new tax age started and 2017 continues making true many expectations of Governments and Tax Administrations. Participants to this year conference will have the unique opportunity to know and to be involved in the current debates with the main actors of the current tax scenario: international organizations, EU experts, academy, representatives from the industry and tax advisers.

Below, you find more information about the topics and speakers. There are few last minute changes in our team, for instance, the head of the MLI project at the OECD will replace Pascal St Amans and Stig Sollun replaces Mr. Lennard (UN) due to health reasons.
