The EESC is drawing up, upon the request of the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU, an exploratory opinion on the topic of
Taxation of the sharing economy – analysing of possible tax policies faced with the growth of the sharing economy. This opinion is exploring how the new models of business, work, and consumption in the sharing economy can be taxed appropriately. Within its wider work on fair taxation the EESC considers proposals for appropriate taxation of the digital economy vitally important for the civil society at large.
It is within this context that the Section for Economic and Monetary Union and Economic and Social Cohesion (ECO) of the EESC is organising a public hearing on Taxation of the sharing economy on 13 September 2017, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Tallinn, Estonia.
