Dr. Dennis Post, international tax partner and global blockchain tax leader at Ernst & Young (EY), joins the University of Amsterdam (UvA) to lead research on the opportunities that distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) and, in particular, blockchain can bring to the field of taxation.
Dr. Dennis Post

Dr. Post will join the Amsterdam Centre for Tax Law (ACTL) and will be one of the academic leaders of the UvA’s research project “Designing the tax system for a Cashless, Platform-based and Technology-driven society” (CPT project).  

Post will lead and conduct collaborative and interdisciplinary research on the implications of distributed ledger technologies (in particular blockchain) in the tax field, with insights on both theoretical and practical aspects. By focusing on governance, technology and legal issues (amongst others), the research to be led by Post will address fundamental questions such as whether and how these technologies may provide significant opportunities to create more robust and fraud proof tax systems. In his new role, Post will work closely with Dr. Claudio Cipollini, recently appointed by UvA as assistant professor in this field.

With his expertise and specific research endeavors, Post will contribute to the overall goal of the CPT project, which is to provide stakeholders and policy-makers with technical tools to make tax systems more fair, efficient and difficult to circumvent.
