Tax evasion - legal, but fair? The EU's tax policy

We are delighted to invite you to the discussion „Tax evasion – legal, but fair? The EU’s tax policy“ with Christoph Trautvetter and Rasmus Andersen! The event will take place on May 8, 2024 at 7 p.m. in the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek, Blücherplatz 1, 10961 Berlin.

The current global tax system is the subject of much criticism: it encourages the widening of social gaps between rich and poor, rewards the destruction of the environment through tax giveaways and consists of too many loopholes overall. Tax policy in the European Union is of great importance for economic development, competition and social justice. In the age of globalization, we face various challenges such as tax evasion, tax avoidance and tax avoidance. In addition, the shadow financial market is growing and money laundering remains a problem. We also hear about the use of legal loopholes by wealthy individuals or multinational companies. These practices have an impact on state revenues, fair competition and coexistence in the EU.
We are pleased to welcome Rasmus Andresen, Member of the European Parliament and Christoph Trautvetter from Netzwerksteuergerechtigkeit on Wednesday, May 8th at 7:00 pm in the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek.

Together with you, Rasmus Andresen and Christoph Trautvetter, we want to discuss the following and other questions:
What factors have contributed to the increase in tax evasion in the EU in recent years?What happens to our coexistence when financial giants such as Amazon or private individuals commit tax evasion or at least use legal loopholes?How can EU-wide regulations be improved to combat tax evasion without compromising the competitiveness of member states?And how can we make our tax system fairer?
