Hearings

SEE ALL

A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

Further to the hearing with multinational corporations held on 21 June 2018 at which McDonald’s and Nike Inc. participated, the TAX3 Committee decided to hold a second hearing on 27 November with the Kering Group, Google and Facebook.

The aim of this hearing is to assess the progress made by these multinationals in the implementation of the Profit-Shifting and Base Erosion (BEPS) project, and to hear their opinions on the EU initiatives on digital taxation which aim at making the digital economy contribute more fairly to national tax systems.
