How can technology help reducing fraud and making tax compliance simpler? The digitalization of administrations offers new opportunities to better cooperate in the fight against tax fraud, evasion and avoidance. New tools promise to facilitate the procedures of tax compliance and to ensure that taxation better reflects the business environment in the digital age. In a public hearing on 25 May 2021, from 9:00 to 10:30, the FISC Subcommittee will discuss with experts the related developments and challenges.

The draft of the own-initiative report on "Reforming the EU policy on harmful tax practices (including the reform of the Code of Conduct Group)" (rapporteur: Aurore Lalucq (S&D) will also be presented and discussed. Then, Members will discuss the draft of the own-initiative report on "Creating an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable system in the post-covid economy" (rapporteur: Claude Gruffat (Greens/EFA)) with a view to the amendments that were submitted.
