EU own resources made by 1) digital levy with a view to introduce it by the end of 2021 on the basis of Commission proposal 2) plastic tax 3) carbon border adjustment mechanism. Proposal by @eucopresident for the recovery package. No space for tax on big companies, neither FTT 😕 https://t.co/UmukiAOgZd

Our analysis of new, watershed OECD data indicates that over $1 trillion of corporate profit is smuggled into tax havens each year. UK, Switzerland, Luxembourg & Netherlands (“axis of tax avoidance”) are responsible for 72% of associated global tax losses. https://t.co/Kj9Wz0wOg0 https://t.co/fmjcjX4lis

Astonishing research from TJN. New data from the OECD shows big corporations are smuggling over a $1 trillion into tax havens to avoid paying their fair share. UK at the heart of this tax avoidance. The abuse must stop. It's high time for public country-by-country reporting. https://t.co/rH5W8umQjr

Uno dei grandi cavalli di battaglia dei "liberali" di casa nostra è quanto sia virtuosa l'Olanda, e insomma, hanno ragione a non volerci prestare soldi.
Un nuovo report a cura di OECD ci conferma che effettivamente conviene loro continuare a rubarli. https://t.co/LSBhYS7pM5

I går udgav OECD for første gang anonymiseret og aggregeret regnskabsdata for multinationale selskabers aktiveter for hvert eneste land de har aktiviteter i.

The data shows $467 billion worth of profit shifted across the world and $117 billion in corporate tax lost. Extrapolating to the global picture indicates total profit shifting of $1.3 trillion each year, and direct corporate tax losses of $330bn. https://t.co/UK1745rkaW
