Tax rulings MEPs to multinationals: "One more chance to contribute to our work"
Multinational companies which have so far refused to cooperate with the Members of Parliament's Special Committee on Tax Rulings will be given one more chance to reconsider their stance, on 16 November. This was decided by coordinators of the committee on Thursday.
Committee chair Alain Lamassoure (EPP, FR) hopes for a higher turn-out than on previous occasions: "I hope that, this time, multinational companies will seize the opportunity to share their views with us on current developments in the corporate tax world. The OECD has presented its action plan against Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) and the Commission consultation on Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) has now started. We are very keen to hear their take on these issues."
Check here which companies have been invited and how they responded.
A draft report by Elisa Ferreira (S&D, PT) and Michael Theurer (ALDE; DE) will be put to a vote by the Tax Rulings Committee in Strasbourg on 26 October, then by Parliament as a whole at its November II session. This would allow amendments to be tabled, as a result of the 16 November meeting, before the plenary vote.
