On October 26, 2017 the European Commission opened a public consultation on fair taxation of the digital economy. The consultation runs until January 3, 2018. The contributions received and a report made as follow-up thereto will be published on DG TAXUD's webpage in the first quarter of 2018

Objective

The objective of the consultation is to define an approach to the taxation of the digital economy. The approach should meet the goals of fairer and more effective taxation, supporting public revenue and a level playing field across businesses. It should also facilitate an efficient taxation, supporting EU growth and competitiveness through the Digital Single Market.

 

Target group

All EU citizens, businesses and organisations interested in the evolution of the digital economy are welcome to contribute to this consultation. The answers you provide as part of the consultation will form an important part of the Commission’s analysis and future proposals. In this way, this is your chance to contribute to policy making.

 

The Commission will consult national tax authorities, experts and other key stakeholders separately. Nevertheless, if you represent any of these categories, you are still welcome to contribute to this public consultation.
