    More transparency in corporation tax?
    Double inaugural address by Professors Stan Stevens and Ton Stevens

    The Panama papers exposed many irregularities concerning corporations that divert money to tax havens. As calls for transparency are growing, the question that is raised with increasing frequency is whether the time has come for corporation tax to be reformed. In their inaugural address on September 14, Professors Stan Stevens and Ton Stevens will consider two aspects of fiscal transparency. The first of these is transparency in terms of public access to information about taxation, the government’s tax policy, and companies’ fiscal strategies. The second aspect is transparency in terms of training the fiscal camera on the stakeholders behind the company’s legal form. Both professors will address the question whether more fiscal transparency is advisable. Read more
