EPIF fully supports the European Commission’s efforts to remove tax obstacles and reduce administrative burdens for European businesses with a view of creating a more business-friendly environment in the EU.

We however maintain that the continued pursuit of a multitude of unilateral corporate tax initiatives will lead to a high degree of unnecessary complexity, uncertainty and inevitable multilayer taxation. Therefore, EPIF strongly recommends for the European Commission to remain as close as possible to multilateral tax agreements of the OECD instead of pursuing unilateral European and/or Member States’ initiatives.
