Taxation in Central Europe

For tax professionals responsible for Central Europe 

Most of the Central European countries are members of EU and have implemented the EU legal and tax framework. Many tax laws are therefore very similar. However, the execution is different. The local regulations are frequently changed. The tax inspectors often have a much more ‘form over substance’ approach. Consequently, many tax audits lead to unexpected high additional assessments and fines for businesses.

This course will show you the pitfalls and will give you tips on how to deal with tax audits in the different Central European countries. It will bring you up to date with the most important local regulations. Becoming familiar with the uses and habits of the local tax authorities will not only help you to avoid unpleasant surprises but also to optimize tax (compliance).  

Join our two-day program and learn about the European developments and regulations, country specific issues that can be of direct benefit for you and your company.
