Country-by-country reporting for multinational enterprise groups

03-05-2016

New proposals on transparency would provide tax authorities with comprehensive and relevant information on the activities of multinational enterprise (MNE) groups to help countries fight tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning. Action has been designed to be implemented at both international and European Union (EU) levels. In particular, Action 13 of the OECD/G20 BEPS (Base erosion and profit shifting) action plan includes a requirement that MNEs provide all relevant governments with information ...

New proposals on transparency would provide tax authorities with comprehensive and relevant information on the activities of multinational enterprise (MNE) groups to help countries fight tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning. Action has been designed to be implemented at both international and European Union (EU) levels. In particular, Action 13 of the OECD/G20 BEPS (Base erosion and profit shifting) action plan includes a requirement that MNEs provide all relevant governments with information on their global allocation of income, economic activity and taxes paid using a common template. The European Commission has proposed to amend the Directive on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation (DAC) to implement BEPS action 13 on country-by-country reporting (CBCR) in the EU. CBCR would be added to the categories of information subject to automatic exchange of information between Member State tax administrations, under the DAC's exchange mechanism. As a tax measure, Parliament is only consulted and the proposal has to be adopted by the Council. A more recent edition of this document is available.

An Effective Dialogue between Supervisors and Auditors – How Can its Implementation Be Monitored?

17-03-2016

Weak banks and their auditors have incentives to overstate bank asset values. In its dialogue with the auditor, the supervisor should stress the need for unbiased accounting data. However, only a supervisor that does not need to apply regulatory forbearance to distressed banks can credibly insist on receiving unbiased accounting data. The introduction of bail-in as the main avenue to resolve failed banks offers the prospect of ending the need for regulatory forbearance, and of improving the quality ...

It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposal.

Die Europäische Zentralbank muss jedes Jahr einen Jahresbericht über die Tätigkeiten des Europäischen Systems der Zentralbanken und die Geldpolitik sowohl für das vergangene Jahr als auch für das laufende Jahr vorlegen. Da die geldpolitischen Entscheidungen der EZB stärker im Blickpunkt stehen als je zuvor, insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund der Beschlüsse, die der EZB-Rat auf seiner Sitzung im Januar getroffen hat, wird die Aussprache im Plenum – die die einzige Gelegenheit ist, bei der EZB-Präsident Mario Draghi jedes Jahr vor dem gesamten Parlament spricht, auch wenn er und andere Mitglieder des Direktoriums der EZB sich regelmäßig mit dem ECON-Ausschuss treffen – ein breites Themenspektrum umfassen.

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative: state of play

24-06-2014

In 2003, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) was launched as a voluntary multi-stakeholder initiative for the extractive industries, bringing together governments, industry and civil society. Its main objective has been to create a global transparency standard which allows light to be shed on all payments made by extractive-industry companies to governments of resource-rich developing countries, and to cross-check all revenues received by these governments from the industry.
