The next CFE Tax Forum will take place on 28 April 2005 in the Residence Palace in Brussels. Details of the programme, speakers and registration appear below. The Confédération Fiscale Européenne (CFE) has been holding an annual forum on current international tax issues since 1993. This event enables members of the taxation profession to debate the latest developments in international tax law with individuals involved in the fields of politics, business and public administration.
The topics this year will be:
- A Tax Treaty for Europe? (The most favoured nation clause and the outcome of the "D" and "Bujara" cases in the European Court of Justice);
- VAT treatment of immovable property (Lessons from the new EU Member States).
The forum will be opened by Mr. László Kovács, European Commissioner for Taxation and the Customs Union. The Commission's Director in charge of Indirect Taxation and Tax administration, Mr. Alexander Wiedow, will speak on the subject of "VAT treatment of immovable property". Details of the programme and speakers can be found on the CFE's website at www.cfe-eutax.org by clicking on Activities of the CFE on the home page, and then Events. They can also be downloaded below. Completed registration forms should be sent direct to the CFE, as indicated on the form.
The registration fee for the Forum is 100 euros. The Institute has decided to sponsor six Branch places at the Forum on a first-come-first-served basis. Branch Chairmen are invited to contact Bianca Marsden at CIOT Head Office by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible (no later than Friday 8 April 2005) to register that they, or another Branch representative, would be interested in attending the Forum.
We hope that this year's Forum will be as successful and interesting as those previously held.
