The Brussels Tax Forum 2011

Brussels, 28-29 March 2011

Taxation of the Financial Sector

The Brussels Tax Forum is an annual conference that brings together policy makers, experts, stakeholders and the general public from all over the world to discuss tax issues of particular political and general interest. The Brussels Tax Forum is hosted in Brussels by the EU Commissioner responsible for Taxation, Customs, Anti-Fraud and Audit.

The topic chosen for 2011 was 'Taxation of the Financial Sector'. The conference focused on whether increased or new taxes on the financial sector could help with correcting risk related behaviour and with the significant efforts for fiscal consolidation required in many Member States.

The Brussels Tax Forum took place in Brussels on 28 and 29 March 2011.
