2018 NEXT GENERATION COCKTAIL

COCKTAIL OF THE NEXT GENERATION DEDICATED TO THE TAXATION OF ROBOTS

The robots are already with us. Originally used exclusively in the industrial sector, the use of robots has spread to all aspects of our lives. The increasing impact of robots on our society necessarily generates a need for new thinking which, in addition to ethical issues, also relates to taxation. TaxCOOP is concerned about the taxation of robots which, without adequate supervision, may cause unfair competition to humans in the long-term. Confident of the decisive role played by the upcoming generation in these debates, TaxCOOP provides a platform to young people during its “Cocktail of the next generation in taxation.”
