Commissioner Šemeta's statement on the proposal to widen scope of automatic exchange of information within the EU
"Today the Commission has proposed to expand the automatic exchange of information between EU tax authorities - and to do so quickly. With this move, the EU will have the most comprehensive information exchange system in the world for taxation.
This will strengthen our weapons to attack tax evasion within the EU, and put us in the best position to seek greater transparency from our international partners.
As such, our fight against tax evasion continues to move forward, and we rely on the support of all Member States to maintain its pace."
