- welcomes the Commission proposal for a regulation on a new Fiscalis programme. National tax authorities still suffer from insufficient capacity and insufficient cooperation and it agrees that there is an urgent need to improve the operation of tax policy, including administrative cooperation and support to the tax authorities;

- encourages the Commission to engage with Member States in developing a common basic training courses for tax authorities in order to improve the functioning of the single market;
- believes that it is important that civil society at large becomes an active part of the Fiscalis programme.
