European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Questions and Answers on the common EU list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions

European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Questions and Answers on the common EU list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions:

Why is the Commission proposing a common EU system for listing non-EU jurisdictions?
The new EU listing process is part of the EU's campaign to clamp down on tax evasion and avoidance and promote fairer taxation, within the EU and globally.
It was proposed by the Commission in the External Strategy for Effective Taxation in January 2016, and endorsed by EU Finance Ministers in May. The European Parliament has also repeatedly expressed support for an EU listing process.
Member States agree that a single EU list of non-cooperative jurisdictions will carry much more weight than the current patchwork of national lists when dealing with non-EU countries that refuse to comply with international tax good governance standards.
An EU list will also prevent aggressive tax planners from abusing mismatches between the different national systems.
A single EU listing system – based on clear, coherent and objective criteria – will also be easier for businesses to deal with, as it will eliminate administrative burdens caused by divergent national approaches. For the EU's international partners, who sometimes struggle to understand Member States' divergent national listing conditions, a common EU approach will create more clarity and legal certainty on what the EU expects when it comes to fair taxation.
The common EU list is intended as a "last resort" option.
It will be a tool to deal with countries that refuse to respect tax good governance principles, when all other attempts to engage with these countries have failed. (...)
