Cooperative compliance programmes increases tax certainty of large businesses

Research |  May 21 2019
Breukelen, May 21, 2019 – “A modern tax administration must include a trust-based regulatory approach in its compliance risk management strategy for large businesses. A so-called cooperative compliance program (CCP) – such as horizontal monitoring in the Netherlands – increases tax certainty and reduces aggressive tax practices.” This is one of the conclusions reached by Maarten Siglé RA in his dissertation titled “The effects of cooperative compliance programmes”, for which he will receive his doctorate from Nyenrode Business University on May 21, 2019.

Scientific validation of audit methodology in accountancy needed

Research |  November 28 2018
“The field of Auditing & Assurance is about people and trust”, says Prof. Dr. Joost van Buuren. However, according to Van Buuren, the field has not been innovative enough in recent years and is failing to adequately fulfill users’ wishes. Van Buuren therefore calls upon the sector to develop a new active approach: one in which innovation is aimed at meeting users’ needs and boosting their trust in the accountant through scientific validation of audit methodology. Van Buuren: “Accountants must start thinking differently and seize opportunities with an open mind in order to increase the relevance of the accounting position.”

Ecosystem perspective in tourism sector creates added value

Research |  October 3 2018
Breukelen, October 3 2018 - An ecosystem perspective on innovation in the tourism sector is needed. This approach places a much greater focus on the various stakeholders in the innovation, which in turn provides a clearer picture of the long-term success and added value for the customer. That is the message shared by Prof. Dr. Bas Hillebrand in his speech. He claims that tourism is uniquely suited for this due to the many (digital) innovations within the sector, and calls upon the industry to conduct joint research into this perspective. Hillebrand also argues that we can use the results of this research to better understand the extent of businesses’ innovativeness, the acceptance of innovations, the necessary skills and the overall customer experience.
