Stenungsund Conference, Thursday April 23 and Friday April 24 2009
The Stenungsund conference is held for the second time, after a very successfull conference in 2008. The Stenungsund conference concentrates on sources of tax law relevant across the national borders within the Nordic countries, and should be relevant for any day to day practice of tax law. The conference will focus on subjects of interest within international tax law, based on the Nordic Treaty on Double Tax Avoidance, the OECD Model Tax Convention and its commentary, the EEC and the EEA agreements as well as relevant court decision and tax authority practices.
The main objective of the conference is to inhance the partcipants' understanding of international tax issues, by increasing their knowlegde of, and their access to, the sources of international tax law, including court and government practices in other Nordic countries. The conference will hopefully further the establishment of a Nordic community of international tax law, by establishing personal relations between tax lawyers in the Nordic countries across the national borders.
This year the conference will among other things focus on permanent establishment issues, trade in CO2 quotas and exit taxes.
Who should attend
The conference is relevant for legal practitioners and attorneys specialising in tax law, including employees in the Nordic tax administrations.
