Briefing 
 

Better cooperation between national authorities on taxation of digital trading 

Parliament will comment on new EU rules requiring member states to automatically exchange information on income generated by sellers on digital platforms.

MEPs will provide their opinion on how to structure these new EU rules, which will help to better trace and tax ‘taxable events’ that take place on ever-growing digital platforms. They are expected to recommend that tax authorities share information with each other more quickly than proposed by the Commission, and that platforms that do not fulfil their obligations should face harmonised sanctions.


The rules amend a directive from 2011 that sets out a structure for tax authorities to cooperate with each other and sets aside EU funds to facilitate this.

The debate will take place on Monday, and the vote on Wednesday.

Procedure: Consultation
