Europe to ban countries from refusing to supply tax information

Plans for an EU directive banning countries from refusing to supply taxation
information on grounds of bank secrecy is to be put to the Economic and
Financial Affairs Council in Brussels on Tuesday (10 November) when ministers
will be asked to agree the general approach, including the extent to which it
will apply to third countries like Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

Chancellor Alistair Darling said in a statement on ECOFIN’s agenda in the
Commons: “The UK supports the proposal and further work in this area, which
links to the wider G20 agenda on good governance in taxation.”
