Public Finance and Taxation
When designing and implementing political strategies and policy measures, the question emerges of how to finace them. Tax revenues are by far the largest source of revenue for the public budgets. Furthermore, tax instruments provide economic incentives for firms and households, inducing behavior changes which can contribute to achieving important political and social goals.
We advise our clients on the evaluation of tax systems based on valid economic principles of taxation, as well as on the design and implementation of financing options for policy measures in various fields. We support our clients in the design of tax instruments that, on the one hand, provide the right incentives to encourage the desired behavioural changes, such as investments in energy-efficient technologies, and, on the other hand, are financially and socially sustainable.
