Start advanced module customs debt and litigation

maart 25 @ 09:00 - 17:00

€1150 – €1290

The incurrence of a customs debt and the recovery of customs duties play an important role in daily customs practices. Often disputes arise on these matters. The purpose of this programme is to explore these areas. The module will be supervised by prof. Eric Van Dooren, judge at Court of Cassation and professor at the University of Antwerp.

Target audience

This advanced module can be taken by participants who have already passed the basic programme (English and/or Dutch) or can prove that they have obtained an equivalent degree of experience.

There are also two additional days in this module, both taught in Dutch, on litigation and law enforcement in Belgium in customs and excises (“betwistingen en vervolgingen in België inzake douane en accijnzen”), on 28 and 29 March 2024. These days are mandatory for regular students registered for the Advanced Master in tax law (specialization customs and excises). Participants who voluntary opt to follow those two days receive also a certificate of attendance when they participate in these two additional days.

Except of these two optional days, all classes are taught in English and involve a high degree of interaction.
