Global experts to convene in Norway for second tax transparency conference


Industry leaders, senior academics and top policymakers will convene at the second Conference on Tax Transparency this December for a joint event from Norwegian Centre for Taxation at NHH Norwegian School of Economics, the Fair Tax Foundation and TRR 266 Accounting for Transparency.  

Taking place on campus in Bergen on 3 December 2024, attendees will hear from high-level speakers and discuss the limits and benefits of existing tax transparency initiatives and the future of tax transparency

Mary Patel, Movement Building and Outreach Manager at the Fair Tax Foundation, said: “We’re delighted to be co-sponsoring the second Conference on Tax Transparency. The stellar speaker line up is testament to just how high on the agenda this issue is for businesses, researchers and governments alike.” 

Speakers include: 

  • Knut Kjær, Professor II, NMBU Founding CEO, Norges Bank Investment Management 
  • Karin Remøe, Head of Tax, DNB 
  • Karl Berlin Partner, Corit Advisory, former VP & Head of Tax, Ørsted 
  • Sandra Martinho, Associate Director, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development 
  • Paul Monaghan, CEO, the Fair Tax Foundation 
  • Sebastien Akbik, Corporate Governance Analyst, UN PRI 
  • Nina Schanke Funnemark, Director General, Skatteetaten 
  • Luise Hölscher, State Secretary, German Ministry of Finance 
  • Annette Alstadsæter, Professor, NMBU, Director, Skatteforsk 
  • Philip Kerfs, Head of International Cooperation Unit, Centre for Tax Policy and Administration of the OECD 

The conference comes at a time when new corporate tax transparency requirements are being introduced across the globe, from the new EU Public Country-by-Country Reporting directive to increasing investor expectations on tax disclosures. Speakers and delegates will grapple with this new tax transparency landscape and look to what 2025 might bring, not least as a year of unprecedented elections around the world comes to a close.  

The campus event is by invitation only but there will be a live stream via Zoom, with a link confirmed nearer to the date. We have a limited number of in-person tickets available for Fair Tax Mark accredited businesses and close networks. Please contact Mary Patel for more information.
