Question for written answer E-002569-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Aurore Lalucq (S&D)

 Subject:  Minimum corporate tax rate in the European Union
 Answer in writing 

In the wake of various tax scandals that have come to light (LuxLeaks, Panama Papers, etc.), the European Commission and Parliament have put in place a number of legislative acts, in particular in the areas of information exchange and combating money laundering.

However, tax competition, which currently exists between Member States, allows multinationals to move to places with a lesser tax burden. Tax harmonisation at European level would make it possible to put an end to this unhealthy competition between countries, businesses and ultimately European citizens.

Does the Commission plan on championing the imposition of a minimum corporate tax rate in the European Union?
