Digital Services Tax_Ecofin

During the ECOFIN-Council of March 12, ministers were not able to find a unanimous agreement on the Digital Services Tax (or the narrower Digital Advertisement Tax), due to objections from several Member States.

During the Ecofin it was decided that the Presidency will instead conduct work on the EU position in international discussions on digital tax, in particular in view of the OECD’s report on the issue, due by mid-2020. It was noted during the meeting that, in the case that no OECD-solution is found in 2020, the EU Member States could reconsider the Digital Services Tax.
