In December 2022 the Directive on ensuring a global minimum taxation was adopted, to ensure a global minimum rate of taxation for multinational groups and large domestic groups in the Euopean Union. This initiative is based on a G20/OECD proposal to guarantee a 15 percent effective corporate tax rate and curb aggressive tax planning and tax competition between countries.
The next step is the transposition of the Directive into national law for each Member State which raises new questions and challenges that need to be addressed in the coming years. What’s in the reform for workers and communities? Can it effectively curb aggressive tax planning in a globalized world? Are additional measures necessary?
The Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations, Saco, together with the EU Tax Observatory, therefore invites you to a seminar on this topic.
The event will be moderated by Simon Vinge, Chief Economist, Union for Professionals ASSR.
