I Tax Robot

10.30 – 12.00

It is anticipated that within the next 30 years tax authorities will, in great part, be replaced by robots and data servers. Fed by information by tax payers, these robot machines will prepare your tax return, cross-reference tax information, inspect and audit corporate accounts and reach out to your bank statements. From a tax payers’ perspective, robots will predict the outcome of a litigation case, analyse case law in a fraction of human time, do tax planning and draft tax clauses. At last, robots will become tax payers themselves. During this working session, speakers and panel members will address the challenges and international developments of automated tax systems and exchange of financial information, and “turning the spell against the machine”, by taxing robots. At last, will tax lawyers become IT specialists?
