As it appears below, the Forum group members teach in a wide range of tax law courses that are offered across various CBS programmes. Apart from teaching at CBS, they also arrange national as well as international conferences and seminars, they participate in and disseminate at research seminars both nationally as well as internationally, and they publish research in widely acknowledged research journals.

Previous Events


Seminar 15 December: 'Harmonising treaty-based anti-tax avoidance' with Visiting PhD Scholar Evan Collins

In this seminar, Evan Collins, will outline how a comparative view of general anti-avoidance rules can help us to understand the challenges to harmonising the Principal Purpose Test (PPT), a treaty-based general anti-avoidance rule (GAAR) which is now included in many tax treaties. The seminar will reflect on the text, design and purpose of the PPT, as well that of the GAARs from New Zealand and Canada, and recent case-law developments from these countries.


Evan Collins is a Doctoral Student in Financial Law at the Faculty of Law at Lund University. His research seeks to analyse the Principal Purpose Test (PPT) a general anti-avoidance rule incorporated into many double taxation agreements as a result of the OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting project. The method of analysis is comparative law, and through researching the general anti-avoidance rules of New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom, the goal of the research is to understand how the PPT might be applied within different states, and what challenges there may be to harmonizing the PPTs application across signatory states.

Tax Talk 2023

TaxTalk 2023 -- Skatteretten er et masseafgørelsesområde, hvor en række spørgsmål skal afgøres for et stort antal skatteydere. På grund af den store mængde kan ikke alle forhold individuelt behandles af fysiske personer. Der er store økonomiske gevinster ved at få mange af disse sager automatiseret. Automatiseringen vil imidlertid presse nogle borgeres retssikkerhed, idet ikke alle har samme forhold og forudsætninger – men hvor går grænsen?

Tidspunkt: Onsdag den 10. maj 2023 fra 16.00 til ca. 18.00 i auditorium C.0.33, stueetagen ved hovedingangen til Dalgas Have 15, Frederiksberg.






The postgraduate programme Master i Skat has been extended to include a course on ‘International Corporate Tax Policy’, which will be taught by Assistant Professor Jeroen Lammers starting Spring Semester 2024. You can read more about the new course and register here.
