Country Specific Recommendations 2013 – taxation aspects
Presenting taxation aspects of Country-specific recommendations 2013, Algirdas Šemeta, Commissioner responsible for Taxation and Customs Union, Statistics, Audit and Anti-fraud, said:
"It is no secret that the Commission regards the fight against tax fraud and evasion as fundamental to both the fairness and efficiency of taxation.
Just last week, our leaders firmly committed to doing everything necessary at EU level to win this battle. Today, we are asking 13 Member States to improve their own tax governance. This is a timely reminder that national tax reforms, coupled with closer EU coordination, reap the best results."
