EC consults on mandatory disclosure of aggressive tax planning

printer Mail

The European Commission is consulting until 16 February 2017 on introducing more effective disincentives for tax advisers and other intermediaries engaged in the promotion of aggressive tax avoidance schemes. The consultation, in the form of an online questionnaire, seeks views on criteria for classifying ‘aggressive’ tax planning and how to put in place a mandatory disclosure scheme for tax advisers.

Pierre Moscovici, EU commissioner for economic and financial affairs, taxation and customs union, said: ‘The public consultation will help us to work out ways to deter intermediaries from designing such schemes, and to give our member states greater insight and information to enable them to put a stop to them.’ See here.
