The Platform for Tax Good Governance assists the Commission in developing initiatives to promote good governance in tax matters in third countries, to tackle aggressive tax planning and to identify and address double taxation. It brings together expert representatives from business, tax professional and civil society organisations and enables a structured dialogue and exchange of expertise which can feed into a more coordinated and effective EU approach against tax evasion and avoidance.
The Platform meets several times a year. It is chaired by the Director-General of DG Taxations and Customs Union, Mr. Stephen Quest.
Members of the Platform are the tax authorities of all Member States and 15 organisations representing business, civil society and tax practitioners. Representatives from accession countries and from the OECD may be invited to the Platform as observers.
