Postdoc-project on "Combating Tax Avoidance and Protecting the Internal Market - EU VAT Grouping"

Karina has performed a 3-year postdoc.-project financed by the Danish Council for Independent Research and the University of Copenhagen. The project concerned a comparative analysis of the rules on VAT grouping in 5 EU countries and 2 non-EU countries with particular focus on problems regarding abuse and avoidance, fiscal competition etc. The research results are published or under publication in international journals and anthologies.

PhD-project on "The Interaction between VAT Law and Income Tax law"

The PhD project concerned the legal study of the interaction between VAT law and income tax law. The project examined the different forms of interaction between VAT law and income tax law that can be distilled through the interpretation and application of similar VAT and income tax concepts to regulations and case law. The main purpose of the project was to examine problems in terms of legal base and EU law in connection with the interaction between VAT and income tax law.
