Seminar: Tax and Industrial Foundations, April 17, 2013 (Danish speaking event)

Der florerer mange myter om beskatning af erhvervsfonde. Nogle mener de
er skattefrie. Andre hævder, de betaler for lidt og at reglerne skal laves om.
Erhvervsfondsudvalget anbefalede tværtimod at lette adgangen til at stifte
fonde via ændringer i skattelovene. Vi indkalder til seminar om emnet for at
afklare argumenterne.

Industrial Foundations seminar: Volker Then, Heidelberg University, October 29, 2012: German industrial foundations and assets of German Foundations

The seminar will explore the assets and asset management and governance issues of German foundations against the background of a survey of the 200 largest German foundations. We particularly asked for restrictions in the asset management of the foundations and for governance and management approaches to asset management. The seminar will include looking at the German industrial foundations, even if their total asset base remains to be established and is difficult to assess due to a lack of standard accounting principles for German foundations.
