Associate Professor of Accounting Tanya Tang will talk about the implications of tax avoidance during a Goodman School of Business event Friday, Feb. 16.
Held as part of Goodman’s Luncheon Speaker Series, Tang will present her paper, “The value implications of tax avoidance across countries” that was recently published in the Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance.
Tang studied data from companies in 46 countries and focused her research on investor perceptions of companies’ tax-avoidance behaviour and found there is a positive relationship between tax avoidance and firm value.
Tang is the recipient of the 2017 Department Research award for Goodman’s Accounting department.
In its 12th year, Goodman’s Luncheon Speaker Series provides an informal and engaging opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with colleagues internationally.
The event is being held in Sankey Chamber Friday, Feb. 16 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Space is limited. Goodman faculty, staff and graduate students are invited to attend. Brock community members wishing to attend can email Jennifer Brisson at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
