Together with members and allies from across Europe, Eurodad has responded to the OECD consultation on the secretariat’s proposal for new international rules to determine the way taxing rights are allocated between countries. While some aspects of the proposal are welcomed, it is generally seen as a missed opportunity to address the fundamental flaws in the international tax system.
The collapse of Carrillion in 2018 shone a spotlight on the extensive use of PPPs in the UK and the heavy burden such projects place on taxpayers. Now, new figures have come to light following an extensive investigation by journalists from JP Media. In a series of two blogs, Eurodad experts analyse these findings and ask the question, who pays the bill?
On 4-6 November 2019, the UNCTAD Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Financing for Development met in Geneva to continue discussions on the issues, concerns and challenges raised in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. In advance of the meeting, Eurodad made the following submission, which you can download here.
