Increased Budget Approved for EU Anti-Tax Fraud Programme

The EU Parliament on 17 April adopted a regulation renewing the EU 2020 Fiscalisprogramme for cooperation in the field of taxation, with a budget of 339 million foreseen for implementation of the Programme in the period between 2021 and 2027.

The regulation sets out that the Programme should “contribute to: supporting tax policy and the implementation of Union law relating to the field of taxation; preventing and fighting tax fraud, tax evasion, aggressive tax planning and double non-taxation; preventing and reducing unnecessary administrative burden for citizens and businesses in cross-border transactions; supporting fairer and more efficient tax systems; achieving the full potential of the single market and fostering fair competition in the Union; supporting a joint Union approach in international fora and supporting administrative capacity building of tax authorities, including by modernisation of reporting and auditing techniques; as well as supporting training their staff in this regard.

Cooperation between authorities will therefore be reported on, with an emphasis on structured collaboration between administrations on existing technologies and systems as part of the Fiscalis programme work, and their interoperability with European electronic systems and programmes.
