According to a press release issued by the Economic and Financial Affairs (ECOFIN) Council with respect to its meeting of March 12, 2019, the Council took note of the progress achieved in the negotiations on the digital services tax, since the issue was last discussed at the ECOFIN meeting of December 4, 2018, on the basis of a new compromise text setting out a scope limited to digital advertising services.


The discussion revealed that despite the broad support from a large number of member states on this text, some delegations maintain reservations either on some specific aspects of the proposal or more fundamental objections.


In parallel, the Presidency will conduct work on the EU position in international discussions on digital tax, in particular in view of OECD's report on the issue, due by mid-2020.
