Taxation

It is an internationally accepted premise that taxation should take place where value is created. This principle is easier said than implemented when intangibles become the very life blood of global business.

While well-meaning, the European Commission’s proposals for adjustment fall short of providing a workable solution. More critically, they run afoul of time-honoured, effective principles of corporate taxation such as profit-based and no double taxation.

With a view to support the Commission’s goal to fend off a possible flurry of national initiatives that would spell chaos and to make sure that all the new instruments contemplated are compatible with the upcoming recommendations of the OECD-led BEPS Inclusive Framework, DIGITALEUROPE is engaged in a tight, trusted and productive dialogue with the Commission, Member States and the OECD.
