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

This Zoom webinar will feature a number of experts on the subject, including QMUL's own Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in International Tax Law, Bernard Schneider.

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]."

The Zoom webinar will be available globally to view live on the day, beginning at 4pm British Summer Time (5pm Central European Summer Time, 11am Eastern Daylight Savings Time).
