The Future of Corporate Income Taxes: Lessons for the Emerging and Low Income Countries
Prof. Dr. Jeffrey Owens, Director, WU Global Tax Policy Center at the Institute of Austrian and International Tax Law will discuss the following issues:
- Trends in corporate taxation
- Current pressures on the CIT system
- Option for reforms
- Politics of reform
- The way forward and implications for emerging and developing economies
Are corporate income taxes currently designed as “fit for purposes“? Should policymakers be engaging in a fundamental review of the structures of these taxes which goes beyond the current focus on the international dimension? What are the options for reform and what political , economic and transitional barriers would need to be overcome? These are some of the questions which will be addressed in this lecture.
The event will take place from 18:15 to 19:45 in Auditorium Ivan Pictet B at Maison de la Paix.
Free entrance. Registration recommended (but not required).
