Tax evenings

From 2016 the Serbian Fiscal Society in cooperation with the University of Belgrade Faculty of Law organizes the Tax Law Seminar (Tax Evenings). The goal of Tax Evenings is to dedicate ourselves every month to a particular tax law topic. With respect to the structure of Tax Evenings, a selected presenter first provides the audience with his/hers thoughts on the subject of the particular Tax Evening, followed with input statements by panel members. Members of the Tax Evenings audience are also free to raise questions. Tax Evenings are open to the public.
