Fiscalis 2013

What is Fiscalis 2020?

Fiscalis 2020 is an EU cooperation programme enabling national tax administrations to create and exchange information and expertise. It allows developing and operating major trans-European IT systems in partnership, as well as establishing various person to person networks by bringing together national officials from across Europe. The programme has a budget of € 234.3 million and will run for 7 years from January 1 2014.

Why Fiscalis 2020?

EU Tax policy makes a substantial contribution to the fight against tax fraud and supports revenue collection for the EU and Member States' budgets. It is a key element in efforts to strengthen an EU Internal Market in which the co-existence of 28 national tax systems raises issues of double taxation and distortion of competition. The Fiscalis 2020 programme helps the tax administrations in the Member States get fully equipped to meet future challenges in these fields.
