2nd Conference on Tax Transparency

Tax Transparency Conference 2024

Tax avoidance and evasion is a global problem which deprives governments and society as a whole of the substantial revenue highly needed to finance public spending. As stated by the OECD, tax transparency is a key policy tool to tackle tax evasion and avoidance. As a result, several tax transparency initiatives have been launched.

Beyond policymakers also investors are increasingly demanding more disclosure of tax information. This is in line with the overall focus of shareholders on company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives since tax represents an increasingly important component of a company’s ESG agenda. Speakers from academia, industry, and government will come together to discuss the benefits and limits of existing tax transparency initiatives and how the future of tax transparency will look like.

The conference will include three panel sessions (see the program here). The event will be on campus is by invitation only but there will be a live streaming via Zoom. For more information on the event, please contact Elisa Casi-Eberhard (elisa.casi@nhh.no).
