CFE Opinion Statement FC 10/2017 - Position Paper on the EU Public Consultation on the Fair Taxation of the Digital Economy

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.
