The 2022 Global Tax Symposium is organized by the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, the London School of Economics (LSE), the University of Louvain (UCLouvain), University of Melbourne, GLOBTAXGOV at University of Leiden and University of Muenster.
Over the past few years, there has been a significant focus on taxation of corporations. However, new challenges are emerging in tax systems, ranging from the adoption of cryptocurrencies, to the commitment to net zero carbon emission targets and the taxation of mobile individual taxpayers. In the years to come tax policy will have to address these issues both domestically and through international dialogue.
The 2022 Global Tax Symposium will address topics crossing the spheres of New Frontiers of International Taxation. The select themes covered by this symposium are:
- Design and co-ordination of carbon taxes
- Taxation of virtual currencies and transactions
- Use of automation and big data analytics by MNEs and tax administration
- Challenges in taxing incomes of mobile earners and wealth taxation, as well as international tax rules.
We expect to have diverse discussions of academic papers and will include the participation of government officials from ministries of finance and tax agencies, academics, tax practitioners, and researchers in different disciplines on taxation.
We also offer the possibility to write a blogpost on the NIPFP web page summarizing some aspects of the paper being presented or focusing on an issue found in the discussed papers. The blogpost will be addressed after the symposium has taken place.
GTS 2022 will be hosted virtually by NIPFP on 1st and 2nd December.
