Program

TaxCOOP 2020 Sommet Mondial Fiscalité

neutral and inclusive forum dedicated to tax competition and tax cooperation

In an era marked by globalization and extraordinary technological advances worthy of the best Sci-Fi tales, the current principles underlying global taxation address archaic needs. Indeed, while multiple corporations of the past decade have acquired a global dimension, tax authorities are confined within the limits of national borders.
This unprecedented situation allows international taxpayers to choose their tax residency at will and pressures states to compete if they wish to attract and retain local and international investors. Governments thus feel constrained to lower corporate tax rates and provide a plethora of tax benefits to stimulate short-term economic recovery and growth.

TaxCOOP aims to foster broad collaboration and a profound reflection,  which are essential to the establishment of an effective and equitable tax system to meet the great challenges facing our world. TaxCOOP is an invitation for everyone to stop and jointly reflect. We appeal to government officials, politicians, businesspeople, academics and members of civil society from around the world to attend this unique forum and reflect on the issue of tax competition between states and taxpayers.
