Briefing - Understanding BEPS: From tax avoidance to digital tax challenges - 21-10-2019

Action to fight corporate tax avoidance has been deemed necessary in the OECD forum and has received further impetus through the G20/OECD Base erosion and profit shifting action plan (known as BEPS). The 2015 BEPS action plan has 15 actions, covering elements used in corporate tax-avoidance practices and aggressive tax-planning schemes. The implementation of the BEPS action plan was designed to be flexible, as a consequence of its adoption by consensus. Recommendations made in BEPS reports range from minimum standards to guidelines, as well as putting in place an instrument to modify the provisions of tax treaties related to BEPS practices. In addition, putting BEPS actions into practice has involved a growing number of countries, so as to provide a more inclusive framework able to involve more countries beyond the OECD and G20 members, and build on cooperation between international organisations. The application of BEPS actions and their follow-up involves issues that remain to be implemented or addressed. Here come in particular issues beyond the avoidance techniques that were addressed in the BEPS action plan, starting with addressing tax challenges of the digital economy, building on the BEPS action1 report that defined a calendar for providing an adaptation of international tax rules to the impact of digitalisation. Based on several intermediary reports, the OECD/G20 inclusive framework on BEPS issued a work programme to develop a consensus solution to the tax challenges arising from the digitalisation of the economy. Endorsed in June 2019 by the G20, this programme outlines the steps for modernising international tax rules. An annex to this document outlines the different international fora and instruments relevant to BEPS actions and the countries or organisations that participate in them or apply them. This briefing updates an earlier edition (PE 607.288), of June 2017. Source : © European Union, 2019 - EP

Briefing - EU listing of tax havens - 21-10-2019

Broadly speaking, 'tax havens' provide taxpayers, both legal and natural persons, with opportunities for tax evasion or avoidance, while their secrecy and opacity also serves to disguise the origins of the proceeds of illegal and criminal activities. One might ask why establishing a list of tax havens or high-risk countries is useful. Drawing up such lists began with action to end harmful tax practices arising from the discrepancy between the global reach of financial flows and the geographically limited scope of jurisdictions that match or exist inside national borders. However we refer to tax havens, they all have one thing in common: they allow individuals or organisations to escape from taxation. Distinctive characteristics of tax havens include low or zero taxation, fictitious residences (with no bearing on reality) and tax secrecy. The latter two are key methods for hiding ultimate beneficial owners. In the EU, the process of adopting a common list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions was initiated as part of efforts to further good tax governance, and its external dimension. On 5 December 2017, the Council adopted a first common list resulting from the assessment of third countries against distinctive criteria. Pursuing the assessment process, the Council has updated the list on the basis of commitments received, while also reviewing countries that had not yet been assessed. This briefing updates an earlier one, from May 2018 – itself an updated and extended version of a briefing from December 2017: ‘Understanding the rationale for compiling “tax haven” lists', PE 614.633 – to take account of the changes in the lists since that date.

Briefing - Digital challenges for Europe [What Think Tanks are thinking] - 18-10-2019

The rapid development of digital technologies is posing a challenge to the European Union, spurring initiatives to catch up with the US and China in the area, notably in the context of the digital single market. Among the dilemmas are how to reconcile Europe’s sensitivity towards protecting private data with the need to use them in many algorithms, and ensure that automation and artificial intelligence strengthen rather than weaken labour market participation. This note offers links to a series of some recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks and research institutes on digital challenges. Many earlier papers on the issue can be found in a previous item in the series, published in July 2018. Many reports on cybersecurity are available in a publication from October 2018.

La présente étude fait partie d’un projet plus général qui vise à jeter les bases d’une comparaison des régimes juridiques applicables à la liberté d’expression dans différents ordres juridiques. Le document expose, relativement à la Belgique et en rapport avec le thème de l'étude, la législation en vigueur, la jurisprudence la plus significative et la notion de liberté d’expression avec ses limites actuelles et en prospective, et s’achève par quelques conclusions avec possibles solutions face aux défis futurs. Dès la création du Royaume de Belgique, la liberté d’expression était protégée au sein de l’ordre juridique belge. L’évolution de la société a, dans une certaine mesure, modifié tant l’exercice que la perception de la liberté d’expression. Face à ces changements, le législateur et la jurisprudence ont dès lors dû s’adapter, afin d’assurer une continuité dans la protection accordée à la liberté d’expression, mais aussi aux droits d’autrui avec lesquelles cette liberté peut entrer en conflit.

Lo studio fa parte di un progetto più ampio, il cui scopo è quello di analizzare, nella prospettiva del diritto comparato, le delicate questioni che riguardano la libertà di espressione (libertà di manifestazione del pensiero, secondo la formula dell’art. 21 della Costituzione italiana). L’obiettivo dello studio è quello di esaminare la problematica nel contesto specificamente italiano, pur nella consapevolezza dell’importanza delle fonti internazionali e dell’Unione Europea in materia. A tal fine, dopo una breve introduzione di carattere storico generale, sono state prese in esame le vicende normative che hanno interessato la libertà di espressione nell’Italia repubblicana. Il punto di partenza è stato, ovviamente, la Costituzione, mentre le altre fonti sono state ordinate in ragione del mezzo di comunicazione che, di volta in volta, disciplinano. Ampia attenzione è stata dedicata alla giurisprudenza. Nell’impossibilità di dare conto di tutto l’immenso materiale disponibile, si sono selezionati alcuni casi particolarmente significativi, tratti dalla giurisprudenza della Corte costituzionale, della Corte di cassazione, del Consiglio di Stato e di alcune giurisdizioni di merito. Sono stati identificati, infine, i principali nodi problematici che occorre tuttora sciogliere, a fronte sia del progresso tecnologico che dell’evoluzione delle società pluraliste.

Este estudio forma parte de un proyecto destinado a sentar las bases de una comparación integrada y correlacionada de la regulación de la libertad de expresión por parte de los diferentes ordenamientos jurídicos positivos. Con especial atención, a los propios de los Estados miembros de la Unión Europea. El documento describe, en lo relativo a España, el análisis de la legislación vigente, de la jurisprudencia constitucional más significativa, así como el estudio del concepto y la naturaleza de la libertad de expresión, prestando particular atención a sus distintos límites. Para concluir, se apuntan algunas posibles soluciones de legge ferenda frente a los evidentes y múltiples desafíos de hoy en la materia. La libertad de expresión está regulada en la Constitución española de 1978 junto con el derecho a la información; dos derechos, por tanto, interrelacionados, pero autónomos e independientes. Ambos se recogen así en el artículo 20 CE, que goza en nuestro régimen constitucional de las máximas garantías, junto con los derechos de autor y la libertad de cátedra. Se constitucionaliza asimismo la prohibición de la censura previa, al tiempo que sólo se permite el secuestro de publicaciones por resolución judicial. El artículo 20 contempla también de forma explícita sus límites, con especial significación a los derechos al honor, a la intimidad personal y familiar y a la propia imagen del artículo 18.1 CE, así como a la protección de la juventud y la infancia. Por último, se mandata la ordenación por ley de los medios de comunicación social de naturaleza pública. Source : © European Union, 2019 - EP

In-Depth Analysis - Mainstreaming of climate action in the EU budget: Impact of a political objective - 11-10-2019

Facilitating the transition to a climate-friendly and resilient economy requires huge investments. The EU has committed to spending 20 % of its 2014-2020 financial resources on climate-related measures. Against the backdrop of the Paris Agreement and of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, such a high-level political objective acquires new salience in the negotiations for the post-2020 EU budget. The European Commission has proposed to raise this objective to 25 % of the EU budget in the next programming period, while the European Parliament has called for an even more ambitious approach. Tracking and reporting climate-related expenditure pose several challenges. This analysis describes how climate action has been mainstreamed in the EU budget so far, as well as possible developments for the 2021 2027 period. The EU appears on track to almost reach its 20 % objective by 2020. Assessments of the tracking methodology and of its impact have identified both achievements and shortcomings. The creation of a broad political objective is deemed to act as a driver of increased focus on climate considerations across different policies. Recommendations for improvements include the development of a stronger performance framework. Source : © European Union, 2019 - EP
