- Seminar “Income taxation of individuals moving their country of residence – inbound and outbound issues” on 14th May 2015 in Brussels, Belgium

After the Tax Practice Group had held the second seminar in September 2014 in Porto in Portugal with the subject “BEPS – Base Erosion and Profit Shifting” the third seminar took place in Brussels in Belgium on 14th May 2015 before the ADVOC AGM.

The seminar was organized by the host law firm Buyle Legal and its partner Jean-Pierre Brusseleers.

As a prelude to this seminar, some participants met the previous evening to have dinner together at a restaurant in Brussels´ historic center for talking about experiences in the field of tax law in their countries.

The next day the participants learned in eight lectures, whether and how the income taxation of individuals occurs in the countries from which the speakers came, if the individuals move their countries of residence.
