time and place

Thursday 17 February 2022, 13:15–14:30

Which tax policies are effective in boosting investments and the economic activity of small firms? And what can Sweden learn from the large corporate tax cut in Finland?

Entrepreneurs are often described as the backbone of modern economies as they create jobs and innovations that would not otherwise exist. Tax cuts can be argued to create incentives for increased investments and many countries have implemented significant tax rate cuts in recent years. This SNS report provides new insights into how corporate tax policies influence the economic decisions of small and younger firms.

The webbinar is organized within the framework of the SNS research project Taxes in a Globalised World.

This meeting will be held in English.
