Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Pascal Arimont (PPE)

 Subject:  Measures to combat tax avoidance
 Answer(s) 

According to a report by the Eurodad network based on Commission data from 17 Member States and Norway (http://www.eurodad.org/files/pdf/1546667-survival-of-the-richest-europe-s-role-in-supporting-an-unjust-global-tax-system-2016-1481106817.pdf), the number of tax deals between EU States and multinational corporations has almost trebled in two years, in spite of the adoption by the Commission of its Anti Tax Avoidance Package. What is more, the countries under investigation are continuing to sign controversial tax treaties with developing countries. The report identifies 752 such treaties.

Is the Commission investigating the tax deals referred to in the report?

Have investigations into this matter already produced results?
