On 27 October, the Col·legi d’Economistes de Catalunya hosts the IEB Tax Forum 2.0, organised by the Barcelona Institute of Economics (IEB). The main goals of the conference are, first, to identify the different institutional models of tax administration that exist in developed countries and, second, to analyse those models that could be the most appropriate for the Spanish institutional reality. José María Duran and Alejandro Esteller, professors at the University of Barcelona (UB) and researchers at IEB, managed the organization of the conference, entitled “Models of Tax Administration”.

The conference will emphasize the need to reform the Spanish tax system considering fiscal decentralization. The conference includes several lectures pronounced by representatives of important companies and consulting firms like Gas Natural, Applus, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Everis; members of Spanish institutions and professional associations such as the State Agency of Tax Administration (AEAT), the Spanish Association of Tax Advisers (AEDAF) and the Register of Tax Advisers (REAF), as well as academicians and politicians involved in the definition of tax systems. 

 The minister for Economy and Knowledge of the Government of Catalonia, Andreu Mas-Colell, opens the conference, together with the president of IEB Foundation, Joaquim Coello, and the director of IEB, Martí Parellada. The opening speech is pronounced by Joel Slemrod, professor from the University of Michigan, head of the Mirrlees Review, adviser to governments of several countries, for example the Unites States, Canada, New Zeland and South Africa, and author of different studies and books on tax administration.
 

The IEB Tax Forum 2.0 is sponsored by the Government of Catalonia, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Everis, AEDAD, REAF and the Col·legi d’Economistes de Catalunya.
