This Opinion Statement by the CFE Fiscal Committee is in response to EU public consultation on the fair taxation of the digital economy.
The CFE believes that the EU should focus its attention on internationally agreed long-term solutions and that short-term or unilateral action is not the best way forward and any European proposals prior to the publication of the interim OECD Report on the Tax Challenges of the Digital Economy would be premature.
The CFE has today published an Opinion Statement on the European Commission proposals published on 4 October 2017, seeking to follow up on the Action Plan on VAT towards a single EU VAT area - time to act.
The Opinion Statement examines the proposed cornerstones of the definitive VAT system and the introduction of the concept of a Certified Taxable Person. it also includes comments on the proposed "quick fixes".
We invite you to read the Opinion Statement, available on the CFE Website.
