There is an increasing focus on tax integrity, sometimes also referred to as ‘fair taxation’. Prompted to a large extent by the publication of the so-called Panama papers in 2015 and the public discourse that followed. But what does tax integrity or fair tax behavior mean? And who decides what is fair? The legislator, the media, the regulator, politics, the citizen, the company you work for or you? And what does fair taxation mean in relation to customer service? This e-learning provides the answers to all of these questions.
The Tax Integrity Awareness training is suitable for all professionals working at financial institutions who may encounter issues of tax integrity in their jobs.
This e-learning is a course at HBO (higher vocational education) level. Specific knowledge is not required, but we do assume that you possess basic knowledge of financial services.
With this e-learning we want to give you a better understanding of the legal and social developments in the field of tax integrity. We explain the differences between tax evasion, tax avoidance and tax optimization, also known as accepted tax planning. Furthermore, we elaborate on the expectations of the supervisors and pay attention to the international (legislative) initiatives aimed at preventing tax avoidance.
The training takes between one and two hours to complete, depending on your prior knowledge about tax integrity.
