Benelux Nations Agree Greater Tax Cooperation

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

30 April 2015


The Prime Ministers of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg have agreed an "Action Plan for Employment and Growth" following their meeting on April 29, 2015.

The Plan focuses on strengthening the internal market in the European Union and reducing barriers to trade. It builds upon a previous statement in March, in which the Luxembourg Government urged member states to remove barriers to trade in electronic services and make the treatment of the digital economy an integral part of all ongoing tax discussions.

The Benelux nations noted that their cooperation in these areas so far has helped to strengthen the internal market of 28m consumers and has provided businesses with a firm base from which to launch into the European and world markets. They now wish to extend this cooperation further to promote e-commerce and the digital agenda, improve VAT standardization, and reinforce cross-border exchange of information.
