EFS is a collaboration of the tax departments of Erasmus School of Law and Erasmus School of Economics of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
EFS has been a leading education and research institute in the areas of international taxation and European taxation for over 25 years.
The work of EFS concentrates on the operation of both indirect taxes, covering VAT and customs duties, and direct taxes, focusing on individual taxation, corporate taxation and source taxation in an international and/or European context.
On Thursday, 6 October 2016 EFS is organising the seminar ‘Tax abuse: Aligning EU concepts with Netherlands taxation’. This seminar (in Dutch and free of charge) will focus on international tax abuse, one of today’s most challenging topics in direct and indirect taxation and customs. Speakers include Professor Peter Kavelaars (Erasmus School of Economics; University of Curacao; partner at Deloitte), Professor Luc de Broe (KU Leuven; partner at Laga), Professor Ad van Doesum (Maastricht University; tax adviser at PwC) and Professor Sjoerd Douma (Leiden University; director at PwC). You are very welcome to attend (3 PE points). Click here for more information about the EFS-seminar (in Dutch).
The next EFS Post-Master in Indirect Taxes (in Dutch) starts on Tuesday, 6 September 2016. The programme comprises weekly afternoon and evening sessions (completion date: 29 November 2016), focusing on day-to-day practice and covering all the latest issues in VAT, including developments in tax liability, place of supply, taxable amount and deduction of input VAT.
