Question for written answer  E-002286/2021/rev.1
to the Commission
Rule 138
Carmen Avram (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Follow‑up to questions E-004768/2020 and the European digital tax proposal

In paragraph 31 of its report entitled ‘digital taxation: OECD negotiations(1), tax residency of digital companies and a possible European Digital Tax(2)’, the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs states that ‘regardless of the progress of the negotiations in the G20/OECD IF, the EU should have a fall-back position and stand ready to roll out its own proposal for taxing the digital economy by the end of 2021, especially as the OECD proposals apply only to a small group of companies and may not be sufficient’ and ‘calls on the Commission to respect the interinstitutional agreement of 16 December 2020 on cooperation in budgetary matters by presenting its proposals for a digital levy by June 2021’(3).

1. What is the latest situation with regard to the OECD negotations on the digital tax reform and what is the latest position of the new US administration on this proposal(4)?

2. According to the Commission’s most recent calculations and estimates, what will the EU digital tax proposal generate by way of additional revenue? Could it please elaborate on these calculations and figures?

3. Will it commit to putting forward its digital tax proposal by summer 2021(5)?
