Taxation and Customs Union

Economic analysis of taxation

Economic analysis of taxation provides valuable input for EU policy making and helps the understanding of tax structures and developments in the EU.

The results of this work feed into numerous policy processes at EU level (e.g. the European Semester, and initiatives on tax transparency and the fight against tax avoidance) and also provide national experts with internationally comparable tax data and analyses.
