The proposal for a Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base spurs the debate among policymakers and stakeholders. Opinions diverge whether such a project would remove obstacles to the completion of the Single Market and reduce compliance cost - or if it would rather impose further red tape, raise compliance cost and take away tax sovereignty from national legislators. The EESC generally supports the Commission proposal, but certain aspects remain controversial among it's members.
In its opinion the EESC recommends a number of concrete measures to remove the most pressing cross-border tax problems that citizens face.
These measures are in particular aimed at removing double taxation and enhancing administrative simplification in cross-border situations (such as the establishment of one-stop services, the setting up of a Cross-Border Taxation Office).
