The course deals with the value added tax, with a focus on the digital economy. This is a topic that receives attention at international level, among other things, at the OECD in the field of 'Base Erosion and Profit Shifting'. Indirect taxes appear to be more resistant to the developments in the digital economy and we therefore see a shift of more tax through indirect taxes rather than direct taxes.
Based on various topics, we will focus on the tax treatment of phenomena related to this digital or new economy, such as electronic services, modern payment methods (including bitcoins transactions) and the issues surrounding vouchers and vouchers. There will also be attention to topics such as Tax Assurance and Horizontal Supervision.
This course is part of the 'Accent indirect tax'. Courses are to attend at Leiden University. Schedules can be found at www.indirecttax.nl
