Extracts from the press conference by Algirdas Šemeta on the setting up by the EC of a platform for tax good governance

69 views

On 23 April 2013, Algirdas Šemeta, Member of the EC in charge of Taxation, Customs, Statistics, Audit and Anti-Fraud, held a press conference on the Platform for Tax Good Governance set up by the Commission to fight tax evasion. The Platform will monitor Member States' progress in tackling aggressive tax planning and clamping down on tax havens. The aim is to ensure that real and effective action is taken by Member States to address these problems, within a coordinated EU framework. The Platform will be comprised of a wide cross-section of interested parties - national tax authorities, European Parliament, businesses, academics, NGOs and other stakeholders. This will also facilitate dialogue and exchange of expertise, which can feed into a more coordinated and effective EU approach against tax evasion and avoidance.
