On 1 December, the Subcommittee on Tax Matters will hold a public hearing on "Do harmful tax practices within and outside the EU create distortions of competition in the Single Market?”.

FISC Members will exchange of views with:
  • Prof. Mario Monti, former EU Commissioner for Taxation,
  • Dr. Martjn Nouwen, Director of the Institute for Tax Transparency at the University of Amsterdam,
  • Prof. Liza Lovdahl-Gormsen, British Institute of International and Comparative Law and Senior Research Fellow in Competition Law,
  • Dr. Irma Mosquera Valderrama, Associate Professor of Tax Law at Leiden,
  • Dr. Petr Jansky Associate Professor of Economics at Charles University
In a first panel discussion, FISC Members and experts will discuss the existence of current harmful tax practices outside the EU and how the existing tools could be improved to eliminate them. The debate will then focus on what extent harmful tax practices within the EU create distortions of competition in the Single Market and which legislative (including possibly Article 116 TFEU) or non-legislative tools could be used to tackle them.
