CFRED’s 15th Tax Law Seminar- The Influence of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights on Tax Law by Dr. Viktoria Wöhrer, LL.M., BSc.

18 November, 2019

The seminar will be postponed. The rescheduled date is to be announced.

This talk will explore the influence of human rights on tax law in the EU. Previous case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has shown this influence in many different areas such as procurement of evidence, procedural guarantees, exchange of information, reduced VAT rates, and tax registration. This talk will analyse court decisions illustrating the influence of human rights and consider their tax policy implications.
