IFS And ETPF To Co-Host International Tax Conference

by Jason Gorringe, Tax-News.com, London

31 January 2007


The European Tax Policy Forum (ETPF) and Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) announced this week that they are holding a joint conference on April 23rd, 2007 to discuss the second wave of a three-year ETPF programme of research projects examining the international dimension of corporate tax.

The research has been commissioned from leading economists across Europe and will be discussed at the conference by a range of distinguished academics, tax practitioners from business and private practice, and officials from national and international institutions.

The ETPF was set up to encourage and commission independent research into the impact of tax policy on business in Europe. Michael Devereux, Professor of Economics at Oxford University and Research Fellow at the IFS, directs its research programme.

Topics to be discussed at the conference, entitled 'The Welfare Implications of International Taxation and Tax Competition' will include:

  • To what extent is corporation tax passed on in lower wages?
  • Do higher corporation taxes raise unemployment?
  • Why have corporation tax revenues remained so high, when tax rates have fallen so far?
  • Is there any evidence of competition over non-profit taxes paid by business?
  • Would a CCCTB improve economic efficiency in the EU?
