Little attention has been paid in tax academic literature to the financial contributions imposed on media service providers under Article 13 of the revised Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD). During this seminar, the legal framework associated with such financial contributions will be the focus of discussion by representatives from government, business and academia working both in the audiovisual and tax domains. Along three different panels, the speakers will analyze the financial contributions imposed on media service providers from both an EU and International Tax Law perspective. By focusing on this specific industry-related regulation, the seminar will build a bridge between two regulatory fields that usually do not speak to each other. The aims is to provide impetus for further reflection on still underexplored but extremely relevant subject.
