Future-proofing tax: make it green, digital, fair

How can taxes help with our climate ambitions? Is it possible to tax digitalised businesses? What tax challenges and solutions does aging populations pose?

We discussed the future of taxation, and how our tax systems must change to adapt to megatrends such as climate change, digitalisation and an ageing population. The webinar marked the launch of Accountancy Europe’s sustainable tax project series and call for contributions.
The aim is to promote a dialogue between policy-makers, civil society and business for holistic solutions.
