Text proposed by the Commission   Amendment
Amendment 1
Proposal for a directive
Recital 1
(1)  In recent years, the challenge posed by tax fraud and tax evasion has increased considerably and has become a major focus of concern within the Union and at global level. The automatic exchange of information constitutes an important tool in this regard and the Commission in its Communication of 6 December 2012 containing an Action plan to strengthen the fight against tax fraud and tax evasion highlighted the need to promote vigorously the automatic exchange of information as the future European and international standard for transparency and exchange of information in tax matters. The European Council in its conclusions of 22 May 2013 requested the extension of automatic information exchange at Union and global levels with a view to combatting tax fraud, tax evasion and aggressive tax planning.

Amendment 2
Proposal for a directive
Recital 2
(2)  As Multi National Enterprise (MNE) Groups are active in different countries, they have the possibility of engaging in aggressive tax planning practices that are not available for domestic companies. When MNEs do so, purely domestic companies, normally small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) may be particularly affected as their tax burden is higher than that of MNE Groups. On the other hand, all Member States may suffer revenue losses and there is the risk of competition to attract MNE Groups by offering them further tax benefits. There is therefore a problem for the proper functioning of the Internal Market.
(2)  As Multi National Enterprise (MNE) Groups are active in different countries, they have the possibility of engaging in aggressive tax planning practices that are not available for domestic companies. When MNEs do so, purely domestic companies, normally small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) may be particularly affected as they usually pay an effective rate of tax that is much closer to statutory rates than MNEs, resulting in distortions to, and malfunctions of, the Internal Market as well as distortion of competition to the detriment of SMEs. To avoid distortion of competition, domestic companies should not face disadvantages due to their size or lack of cross-border trade. Furthermore, all Member States may suffer revenue losses and there is the risk of unfair competition between them to attract MNE Groups by offering them further tax benefits. There is therefore a problem for the proper functioning of the Internal Market. In this respect, it should be emphasised that it is the Commission that is in charge of the proper functioning of the Internal Market.
Amendment 3
Proposal for a directive
Recital 2 a (new)
(2a)  It is of vital importance for the Union that tax rules are designed not to impair growth or investments, put Union companies at a competitive disadvantage, nor increase the risk of double taxation and that they are designed to minimise costs and administrative burdens for companies.
Amendment 4
Proposal for a directive
Recital 3
(3)  Union tax authorities need comprehensive and relevant information on MNE Groups regarding their structure, transfer pricing policy and internal transactions in and outside the EU. That information will enable the tax authorities to react to harmful tax practices through changes in the legislation or adequate risk assessments and tax audits, and to identify whether companies have engaged in practices that have the effect of artificially shifting substantial amounts of income into tax-advantaged environments.
(3)  Member States' tax authorities need comprehensive and relevant information on MNE Groups regarding their structure, transfer pricing policy, tax settlements, tax credits and internal transactions in and outside the Union. That information will enable the tax authorities to react to harmful tax practices through changes in the legislation or adequate risk assessments and tax audits, and to identify whether companies have engaged in practices that have the effect of artificially shifting substantial amounts of income into tax-advantaged environments. The Commission should also have access to the information exchanged between Member States' tax authorities in order to ensure compliance with the relevant competition rules. The Commission should treat the information as confidential and take all appropriate measures to protect that information.
Amendment 5
Proposal for a directive
Recital 4
(4)   Increased transparency towards tax authorities could have the effect of giving MNE Groups an incentive to abandon certain practices and pay their fair share of tax in the country where profits are made. Enhancing transparency for MNE Groups is therefore an essential part of tackling base erosion and profit shifting.
(4)   An adequate level of information provided to and exchanged between Member States' tax authorities as well as the Commission could have the effect of giving MNE Groups an incentive to abandon certain practices and pay their tax due in the country where the value is created. It would also increase the 'peer pressure' between Member States and would focus the attention of financial markets on the fiscal accountability of MNEs. Enhancing transparency for MNE Groups, without hampering the Union's competitiveness, is therefore an essential part of tackling base erosion and profit shifting and, ultimately, tax avoidance.
Amendment 6
Proposal for a directive
Recital 6
(6)  In the country-by-country report, MNEs Groups should provide annually and for each tax jurisdiction in which they do business the amount of revenue, profit before income tax and income tax paid and accrued. MNE Groups should also report number of their employees, stated capital, retained earnings and tangible assets in each tax jurisdiction. Finally, MNE Groups should identify each entity within the group doing business in a particular tax jurisdiction and should provide an indication of the business activities each entity engages in.

Amendment 7
Proposal for a directive
Recital 8
(8)  To ensure the proper functioning of the Internal Market, the EU has to provide for fair competition between EU MNE Groups and non-EU MNE Groups for which one or several of their entities are located in the EU. Both of them should therefore be subject to the reporting obligation.
(8)  To ensure the proper functioning of the Internal Market, the Union has to provide for fair competition between EU MNE Groups and non-EU MNE Groups for which one or several of their entities are located in the Union Both of them should therefore be subject to the reporting obligation. Member States, in this respect, should be responsible for enforcing the reporting obligation of the MNEs through, for instance, introducing steps to penalise MNEs in the event of non-reporting.
Amendment 8
Proposal for a directive
Recital 9 a (new)
(9a)  Member States should ensure that they maintain or increase the level of human, technical and financial resources dedicated to the automatic exchange of information between tax administrations and to data processing within tax administrations.
Amendment 9
Proposal for a directive
Recital 11
(11)  As regards exchange of information between Member States, Council Directive 2011/16/EU of 15 February 2011 on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation and repealing Directive 77/799/EEC already provides for the mandatory automatic exchange of information in a number of fields. Its scope should be enlarged to provide for the mandatory automatic exchange of country-by-country reports between Member States.

Its scope should be enlarged to provide for the mandatory automatic exchange of country-by-country reports between Member States, and the communication of such reports to the Commission. Moreover, the Commission should make use of the country-by-country reports to assess the compliance of Member States with Union State aid rules, as there is also a State aid dimension to unfair tax practices in the field of corporate taxation.
Amendment 10
Proposal for a directive
Recital 12
(12)  The mandatory automatic exchange of country-by-country reports between Member States should in each case include the communication of a defined set of basic information that would be accessible to those Member States in which, on the basis of the information in the country-by-country report, one or more entities of the MNE Group are either resident for tax purposes, or are subject to tax with respect to the business carried out through a permanent establishment of an MNE Group.
(12)  The mandatory automatic exchange of country-by-country reports between Member States and with the Commission should in each case include the communication of a defined set of basic information which should be based on uniform definitions and which would be accessible to those Member States in which, on the basis of the information in the country-by-country report, one or more entities of the MNE Group are either resident for tax purposes, or are subject to tax with respect to the business carried out through a permanent establishment of an MNE Group.
Amendment 11
Proposal for a directive
Recital 16
(16)  It is necessary to specify linguistic requirements for the exchange of information between Member States on country-by-country report. It is also necessary to adopt the practical arrangements necessary for the upgrading of CCN network. In order to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of Articles 20(6) and 21(7), implementing powers should be conferred on the Commission. Those powers should be exercised in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

It is also necessary to adopt the practical arrangements necessary for the upgrading of CCN network and to make sure that the duplication of standards resulting in an increase in administrative costs for business operators is avoided. In order to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of Articles 20(6) and 21(7), implementing powers should be conferred on the Commission.

Amendment 15
Proposal for a directive
Recital 20
(20)  Since the objective of this Directive, namely the efficient administrative cooperation between Member States under conditions compatible with the proper functioning of the internal market, cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States and can therefore, by reason of the uniformity and effectiveness required, be better achieved at Union level, the Union may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty on the European Union. In accordance with the principle of proportionality, as set out in that Article, this Directive does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve that objective.
