Copenhagen 20 September 2017 / Prague 15 November 2017

We are proud to present two joint workshops of University of Copenhagen, University of Economics, Prague and KPMG on the EU perspective of interaction between personal income tax and social security contributions in cross-border situations within the EU.

Different systems of personal income tax and social security of the EU member states can cause hindrances to free movement of persons and services. Even with the coordination by double tax treaties and EU Regulation on the coordination of social security, the interaction and mismatches of principles and rules applied among the systems can be problematic in cross-border situations. Individuals, as well as employers, can get into all kinds of situations leading to various sum of payroll duties, which possibly could be considered discriminatory or undesirable also from the states’ perspective.

The workshops will involve speeches and panel discussions of experts from academics, business, advisory and tax and social security administration.

The keynote speakers are: 

  • Prof. Frans Pennings, President of the Department of International and European Law at Utrecht University
  • Malcolm Scicluna, Director, Department of Social Security, Ministry for the Family and Social Solidarity, Malta, responsible for the area of social security during Maltese presidency in 2017
  • Jörg Tagger, Head of Unit of Coordination of Social Security Systems, European Commission.
