Current research

Postdoc-project on "Combating Tax Avoidance and Protecting the Internal Market - EU VAT Grouping"

The 3-year postdoc.-project is financed by the Danish Council for Independent Research and the University of Copenhagen.

The different implementations of the EU VAT grouping rules at national level are problematic in terms of VAT fraud and evasion, distortion of fiscal competition and the functioning of the internal market in the EU. The project will examine legal measures and solutions in order to combat VAT avoidance and protect the internal market and the EU VAT system by a comprehensive examination of the VAT grouping rules in a number of EU countries and New Zealand. One of the core questions is to examine to which extent the EU VAT grouping rules are in conflict with fundamental principles in the EU VAT system.

PhD-project on "The Interaction between VAT Law and Income Tax law"

The subject of the project is the legal study of the interaction between VAT (value added tax) law and income tax law. The project examines the different forms of interaction between VAT law and income tax law that can be distilled through the interpretation and application of similar VAT and income tax concepts to regulations and case law. The main purpose of the project is to establish to which extent the actual interaction between VAT and income tax law are in conflict with current valid law and/or EU law and in that case to suggest solutions to the problems.

The PhD-project is finalized at the beginning of 2016, still research within the cross field between VAT and tax law continues.
