CFE responds to the OECD consultation on taxation of the digital economy
Released 04 March 2019
Confédération Fiscale Européenne (CFE) has published an opinion statement setting out its response to the OECD public consultation on tax challenges of the digital economy.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) consultation, published on 13 February 2019, outlined proposals on review of the international tax rules arising from the tax challenges of the digitalising economy. The CFE response expresses its strong support for the aim of a future-proof, longer-term reform of the international tax system to address the tax challenges of the digitalisation of the economy. Given the pace of transformation of the global economy, the CFE considers that proposed changes need to be ambitious and sustainable in the long-term, and able to follow the pace of emergence of new business models. However, the CFE expresses reservations concerning the proposed global minimum tax rate (income inclusion rule and global anti base erosion proposals).
