Joaquim Pedro Lampreia is quoted in Jornal de Negócios, where he shares his opinion on the continued relevance of tax transparency in the current economic and regulatory landscape.

The article that sparked this incisive debate is entitled "Is the transparency created to prevent tax evasion still justified?" and analyses the effectiveness of the tax transparency measures implemented in recent years in Portugal. The question at stake is whether these measures are still viable and whether they are still necessary to combat tax evasion and guarantee fairness in the tax system.

The lawyer argues that the current regime is "anachronistic" and "no longer justified". According to him, the current regime harms "the capitalisation of companies" and creates a "distortion of competition, since professional companies that are not subject to tax transparency, for example those with more than 5 partners, have a very different tax regime".
