These initiatives are only the start of the establishment of a fairer tax system in Europe, on the basis of which profits are taxed where value is created. At the same time, we will continue enforce our state aid rules where we believe that selective tax advantages distort fair competition. Our political pledge is simple: all companies have to contribute their fair share.
Companies don’t pay the economic burden of a tax. So to insist that they should pay some “fair amount” is logically absurd.
