法国建议欧盟今年年底出台数字税政策

法国正在积极推进欧盟数字税进程,该国财政部长Bruno Le Maire近日表示,希望在2018年底之前批准该项税收政策。

CNBC援引Le Maire报道称,法国政府希望对谷歌、苹果、Facebook和亚马逊征收新税,以便他们支付政府认定的地区合理税率。

“我们希望在今年年底之前通过关于数字税收的指令。这对法国政府来说是一条明确的红线,“Le Maire在布鲁塞尔告诉记者,他准备与欧洲同行讨论这个问题。 “我们知道存在一些技术问题......但这些是技术问题,而不是政治问题,所以我们仍然需要在下一个Ecofin(欧盟财长之间的定期会议)之前三到四周来解决这些技术问题。”

该财政部长接着表示,他将抓紧时间与德国共同寻求妥协并克服技术问题。根据该报告,一些成员国认为税收会损害较小的国家,或潜在的一些传统行业。爱尔兰和荷兰认为欧盟应该等待国际化的做法,以使它看起来不像是反商业。

尽管如此,Le Maire表示要等待更长时间是“政治上的失败。”他指出,延迟可能会增加支持税收的个别国家(包括英国和西班牙)的风险,而其余国家则没有。

CNBC引用英国《金融时报》的报道称,尽管受到了抨击,财政部长们还是放弃了在12月达成协议的想法。与此同时,欧盟司法委员Vera Jourova在里斯本网络峰会上告诉CNBC,欧洲在推进数字税收方面仍然有很大的决心。

France is plowing ahead with its vision for a European Union-wide digital tax, with the country’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire saying he wants the tax approved by the end of 2018.

CNBC, citing Le Maire, reported that the French government wants a new tax on Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon so that they are paying what the government sees as a fairer tax rate in the region.

“We want the adoption of the directive on digital taxation by the end of this year. This is a clear red line for the French government,” Le Maire told reporters in Brussels as he prepared to discuss the issue with his European counterparts. “We are aware there are some technical issues … but these are technical concerns, not political problems, so we still have three or four weeks before the next Ecofin (a regular meeting between EU finance ministers) to fix those technical issues.”

The finance minister went on to say that he would spend “day and night” with Germany to find a compromise and to overcome the technical issues. According to the report, some member states think the tax would hurt smaller countries, or potentially some of the more traditional industries. Ireland and Netherlands think the EU should wait for an international approach so that it doesn’t look like it is anti-business.

Still, Le Maire said that to wait any longer would be “political failure.” He noted that a delay could raise the risk of individual countries that are in favor of the tax, including the U.K. and Spain, going ahead without the rest of the EU. Citing Financial Times, CNBC reported that, despite all the bluster, the finance ministers gave up on the idea of reaching an agreement in December. At the same time, Vera Jourova, the EU’s justice commissioner, told CNBC at the Web Summit in Lisbon that there is a “very strong” determination in Europe to move ahead with the digital tax.
