CFE Opinion Statement on Tax Good Governance Priorities

At the commencement of the new mandate of the European Commission’s Platform for Tax Good Governance, Aggressive Tax Planning and Double Taxation, CFE Tax Advisers Europe is taking the opportunity to set out the tax and professional affairs policy issues it identifies as significant concerning taxation and the future.

The EU Platform for Tax Good Governance was established by the European Commission in order to seek advice and assistance from expert stakeholders in the field of tax good governance, aggressive tax planning and double taxation. CFE has been a member of the Platform since its inception in 2012 and has benefited from the opportunity to provide its input on many significant taxation issues through its participation at the expert group. CFE is honoured to be among the limited number of non-governmental members and to be the only organisation of advisers in the professional tax field selected to participate in the important work the Platform carries out.

Given the technical expertise within the CFE organisation and its status as being a leader in tax knowledge, its participation in the EU Commission VAT Expert Group, EU Commission VAT Forum and UN Committee of Experts in International Cooperation in Tax Matters, CFE looks forward to being able to draw on the direct link it has to the experience of practitioners across the EU to contribute to the valuable work of the Platform. Accordingly, CFE is pleased to share this Opinion Statement setting out key priorities and questions concerning tax good governance currently facing European tax advisers.

We invite you to read the Opinion Statement and remain available to discuss any questions or comments.
