Today is 'Taxation of Expatriate and Cross-Border Individuals' Day (via Zoom)

The Institute of Tax Law at Queen Mary University's Centre for Commercial Law Studies in London will today (June 29) host a panel discussion, via Zoom, on the topic of "the Taxation of Expatriate and Cross-Border Individuals."

The event will see a number of well-known experts on the subject sharing their views, including QMUL's own Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in International Tax Law, Bernard Schneider.

The Zoom webinar will start this afternoon at 4pm British Summer Time (5pm Central European Summer Time, 11am Eastern Daylight Savings Time), according to the event's organizers.  

Schneider – who is, among other roles, also academic director of the Institute of Tax Law – will be joined in the panel discussion by Edoardo Traversa, a tax and European law criminology professor at Belgium's Université Catholique de Louvain, as well as serving as head of its Institute of European Studies, and practicing law in Belgium; John Richardson, a Toronto-based citizenship lawyer  who specializes in looking after U.S. citizens and Green Card holders who live outside of the U.S.; Laura Snyder, a Paris-based lawyer and advocate for taxpayer rights, who is currently serving as the sole international member of the IRS's Taxpayer Advocacy Panel, and who is also a member of the board of the Paris-based Association of Americans Resident Overseas; and Karen Alpert, an American expat and tax expert who lives in Brisbane, Australia, and who recently retired from the University of Queensland Business School there, and who oversees a blog entitled FixtheTaxTreaty.org.

According to a description of the planned discussion, it will focus on "the nature of migration and expatriation today," including "the types of migrants and expatriates" that are currently cris-crossing international borders – including the "small but growing number of individuals who do not reside in their jurisdiction of origin, or whose residence is split between more than one jurisdiction" – and how the tax residence of such individuals should be best be determined, while taking into account "the tax consequences and reporting requirements that are imposed on [them]."
