Professor Pierre-Marie Glauser has once again been appointed by the Federal Council as a member of the consultative body on VAT, for a period of four years. He sits on the body as a representative for academic institutions.
The consultative body is an extra-parliamentary commission tasked with taking a position and making recommendations on possible changes to the law on VAT (LTVA) as well as administrative practices in this area. The body creates a fundamental link between taxpayers and the administrative authorities and plays an important role in the development of VAT. As a permanent member of this body since 2010, Prof. Glauser will represent academic circles. His appointment covers a new four-year period, from 2020 to 2023.
“Being able to provide insights from both an academic and practical perspective on the issues referred to the consultative body is undoubtedly an advantage that makes a useful contribution to the committee’s work”, explains Prof. Pierre-Marie Glauser. “The experience of past years has shown that working with the administrative authorities is very constructive. This will be particularly important in the future, since VAT will need to continue to adapt to legislative and economic changes, particularly in relation to the increasing importance of digitisation”, he adds.
