About this initiative


This proposal will explore how EU decision-making on certain tax issues could be streamlined by removing the need for unanimous agreement by all countries.

These matters would instead be decided by a weighted system ("qualified majority voting") where measures can be carried if supported by a minimum number of EU countries, representing a minimum share of the EU population.
This is one of a series of major new initiatives to give renewed momentum to the EU.
