Double taxation still remains one of the biggest obstacles to cross-border trade. The conference will analyse the reasons for the existence of juridical and economic double taxation and the given solutions for the avoidance of double taxation. Special emphasis is put on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and on legislative proposals which will improve the situation of the taxpayer.
In 2009, the Luxembourg based advisory firm ATOZ funded a new chair for International and European Taxation at the University of Luxembourg. Since February 2010 this chair has been held by Dr. Alexander Rust who previously taught at the prestigious LL.M. programme for International Taxation at New York University. For the conference he invited leading practitioners and academics who have extensively worked and published on the topic of the Avoidance of Double Taxation within the European Union. Mr. Koen Lenaerts, judge at the European Court of Justice, will illustrate the jurisprudence of the ECJ. After each lecture a panel will discuss the proposals made by the speakers. An audience of more than 200 practitioners and academics is expected to attend the conference.
The conference will take place from 9 am to 5.30 pm at the University of Luxembourg on Campus Kirchberg, 6, rue Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Luxembourg-Kirchberg ( in English). The conference programme can be downloaded on www.uni.lu in the event section.
