EC tax commissioner jets in to UK

László Kovács on UK jaunt, meeting ICAEW and CIOT to discuss the competitiveness of the EU's tax system

László Kovács, European Commissioner for Taxation and Customs Union, is on a
whirlwind tour of London to discuss the European Commission’s Common
Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) project and tax competition between EU
member states.

Kovács will meet with the Confédération Fiscale Européenne (an umbrella body
for 150,000 tax advisers in Europe), the CIOT and the ICAEW and to discuss what
is one of the most topical and contentious EU policy issues.

CIOT president John Cullinane said the meeting with Kovács highlighted the
importance of ‘a European perspective in tackling issues like compliance cost
and competitiveness generally’.

Paul Morton, CFE President, said: ‘Potential tax simplification across the EU
is an important step in ensuring that we remain competitive in a global market.’
