Question for written answer E-001907-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nadine Morano (PPE)

 Subject:  Fighting the shadow economy

On 22 February 2019, France’s employment advisory council published a report on the shadow economy, which claims that almost 2.5 million French people are involved in undeclared work, at least occasionally.

This has undervalued gross domestic product by 12.6% and led to non-payment of social security contributions and taxes. Given that this is not an isolated case but exists to some degree across all Member States:

Does the Commission have a recent estimate of the size of the shadow economy in the EU? What action is it taking to support Member States in combating undeclared work?
