Event Review: KAS-BDI Single Market Workshop III

The Complexities of EU Corporate Taxation



Our third and final KAS-BDI Single Market Workshop for 2023 this week addressed the complexities of EU corporate taxation. Insights shared by Ioanna Mitroyanni (DG Taxation and Custom Union), and Christian Kaeser (Siemens) as well as our moderator and co-host Philipp Gmoser (BDI - Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie e.V.) delved into the BEFIT proposal, the Commission's latest attempt from September 2023 to introduce a single corporate tax rulebook for the EU.
This proposal aims to harmonize rules across Europe, aiming to streamline the challenges posed by 27 different tax systems, which incur significant costs for businesses. The discussion spotlighted the challenges in creating a more efficient system while taking into account the need for unanimity among the member states. 
Business representatives engaged with EU counterparts, stressing the urgent need for simplified tax regulations, and reiterating their commitment to complying with EU rules. 
Anticipating a new EU-COM mandate, discussions delved into prospective changes and potential challenges for businesses. The evolving political landscape adds anticipation—how might these shifts impact efforts toward a simplified, efficient corporate tax system?

Stay tuned for further updates into crucial business issues!
