The Commission has today announced plans to introduce a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) as part of a broader package of corporate tax reforms. In reaction, the chairman of Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee Roberto Gualtieri (S&D, IT) made the following statement:
“The European Parliament has always been on the lead to increase corporate transparency in the area of taxation and to guarantee that profits are taxed where they are generated. Therefore, we welcome the Commission proposals for a Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) and the related measures of the corporate taxation package as an important step forward in the fight against tax avoidance and also as a relevant building block of the Capital Markets Union project.
