Lunch lecture Belastingdienst (Dutch Tax and Customs Administration)

The Belastingdienst (Dutch Tax and Customs Administration) of the future (YouTube) wants to communicate with citizens and businesses in a modern way, make it as easy as possible to meet tax obligations and, of course, deal with the use and sharing of data in a socially responsible way.

A precondition for this ambition is the way in which data is handled. As with virtually all other data-intensive organisations, we are on the eve of a turnaround in the way information systems are produced. Data, information or, in fact, knowledge must become the first-class citizen in any form of digitisation. The principles of Agile Legislation (ISBN: 9789462905528), the fundamentalist separation of interests (Edgser Dijkstra; separations of concerns), orderly knowledge-information and data-modelling, connecting rather than unlocking, and a great emphasis on traceability and auditability of data and rules are just a few of the anchors on which the data vision is based.

In this lunch lecture, a short introduction about the Tax and Customs Administration will be given, after which the topics mentioned above will be discussed. The lunch lecture will take place entirely online at
