Case law from the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, proposals from the Commission in Brussels and, of course, Brexit: the VAT landscape is continually changing. As a top-level indirect tax specialist you operate in an environment of constant flux. You obviously have to keep up with developments in this environment and maintain an overview, both of your specialised field and commercially. But your time is scarce.

The EFS 3-day top-level seminar on ‘EU VAT: Recent Developments and Outlook’ (in English, with a maximum of 25 participants) will ensure you are fully up-to-date with all the important developments in your area of expertise. You can be assured of in-depth discussions with the most prestigious international speakers: Ben Terra, Oscar Henkow, Marie Lamensch, Andrea Parolini, Thierry Charon and René van der Paardt.

EFS is pleased to invite you and other top specialists (see Target Group on page 7) from tax advisory services, legal practice, the judiciary, government bodies, tax authorities and academia to discuss the implications for VAT of a wide range of topical issues in an informal setting. The seminar will cover various important topics, including e-commerce and the digital economy, the scope of the concept of economic activities, deductibility of VAT by holding companies, exemptions for financial services, and the treatment and impact of non-taxable activities. All based on the provisions of the EU VAT Directive.

Other issues to be dealt with are the VAT position of permanent establishments and interaction with the fiscal unity for transactions between head offices and permanent establishments and the Commission’s recent proposal on cross-border services.

The VAT and related customs implications of the UK’s forthcoming exit from the EU will obviously also be examined. On the final day of the seminar Ben Terra will ensure you are completely up-to-speed with all the latest developments in European Court of Justice case law.

Are you looking to update, expand and exchange your highly specialised knowledge and to network with other top professionals? If so, sign up now for the EFS top level seminar on ‘EU VAT: Recent Developments and Outlook’, to be held at the Erasmus University Rotterdam campus from 27 – 29 September 2017.
