Taxation is a determining element in managerial decisions, because it is a particularly large expense for companies and individuals. This cost must be fully understood by CEOs and their advisors. All charges for tax must be assessed because they often determine the economic validity of managerial decisions.
International taxation is also taking on importance of the first order in view of the broad European market and the globalization of the economy. The complexity and rapidity with which this matter is developing entail the need for specific training and regular updating.
This program covers Belgian, European and international tax viewed pragmatically by specialists in the field. Tax laws change frequently. Hence all specialists must not only possess a sound basis but also regularly update their knowledge. This is why this training program is completed by updating seminars dealing with recent reforms.
The Specialization Master in Tax Law with a focus on Customs Compliance is the result of a collaboration between HEC Liège - School of Management of the University of Liège - and the Faculty of Law, Political Science and Criminology of the University of Liège.
Anchored in international tax law and applied to global operations, customs compliance has become strategic to the development of international trade operations. The considerable increase in the logistical flows in recent years and the changes pertaining to the regulations and the environment of global trade have led to the need for economic operators to develop new skills in customs and excise.
The programme covers European and international taxation, operations management and international trade law. The courses offered in customs legislation are taught in a pragmatic way by numerous guest experts from international organizations (WCO, WTO, European Commission) and from administrations and the private sector.
