Overpaid Tax - Changing the remedies landscape
Monica Bhandari, UCL Laws
Chaired by The Chancellor, Sir Terence Etherton
Thursday 13th March 2014
from 6 - 7pm
Where a taxpayer has overpaid tax it is now well established that, in principle, the tax can be recovered. However, the boundaries of this recovery are changing dramatically. Judgments from the European court of Justice in tax cases are demanding that remedies are given to taxpayers, even where the domestic system does not provide for them, or in a manner which is outside the domestic system. This lecture will consider the broader impact of these decisions. In particular what issues arise from the circumstances in which taxpayers with an issue at European law have a more powerful claim than those with a purely domestic issue? Where does this leave the domestic system of remedies in tax cases?
