The Commission would refer the Honourable Member to the documents published by the Commission's Task Force (TF50) on the evolution of the Article 50 negotiations with the United Kingdom (UK)(1). In particular the understanding reached on 19 March 2018 at the level of the Negotiators of the Commission and the United Kingdom Government on elements of the draft Withdrawal Agreement (draft following the negotiation round with the UK of 16-19 March 2018(2)) sets out the modalities for the payment by the UK of its share of the Union liability for the pension and other employee benefits rights(3). The taxation regime that will be applicable to those benefits is addressed in Title XII ‘Privileges and Immunities’ of the Draft Agreement(4).
