Our future is digital and digitalization knows no border. The digitalization of services therefore seems to be the key to creating unrestricted access to EU-wide markets. The services of tax advisers are also becoming increasingly digital.
The Federal Chamber of Tax Consultants in Germany (Bundessteuerberaterkammer BStBK) and the German Association of Tax Advisers (Deutscher Steuerberaterverband) is organising Wednesday, February 24, starting with 14.30, the Second Brussels Dialogue on Professional Law conference.
What function can national professional law assume in a future that appears to be borderless due to increased digitalization?
At the same time, professional law guarantees compliance and the high quality of German tax advisers’ services: requirements that have proven themselves particularly well during the COVID-19 pandemic with serious economic consequences for EU economies. . For SMEs in particular, tax advisers are currently a vital pillar of the economic crisis as the responsible body for administering tax law.
Large aid packages were launched to support the economy
shaken by the Corona crisis, to stimulate consumption and to provide further funding for companies.
Based on professional law, the German government places particular trust in tax professionals and has anchored this professional group as a legal compliance authority within the framework of the Corona economic stimulus programs. This is why German tax advisers play a key role in fighting the crisis and maintaining the common good.
Quo vadis professional law of tax advisers? An analogous
phase-out model or rather a model for a legal framework
that guarantees valuable, value-adding and value preserving services in Europe?
These are the subjects that are going to be discussed during the webinar.
The event will be opened by MEP Evelyne Gebhardt, (S&D/SPD), Committee on
the Internal Market and Consumer Protection and Torsten Lüth, StB, President of the Association of Tax Advisers, Mecklenburg- Western Pomerania), who will be discussing the future of national professional law in the digital era. Then Martin Frohn, Head of Unit Regulation of Professions, DG GROW, European Commission) and Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schwab, StB, President of the
German Federal Chamber of Tax Advisers will take floor and discuss that key-role that tax advisers have during the pandemic.
The conference will be held in German with simultaneous interpretation in English.
