The Council will aim to reach a political agreement on the proposed amendment to the directive on mandatory exchange of information in the field of taxation. The amendment would introduce a requirement for the member states to exchange tax-related information on the activities of multinational companies. The proposal is part of a package of measures aimed at strengthening EU rules to prevent corporate tax avoidance. The Council is also expected to adopt conclusions on the future of the Code of Conduct in the area of business taxation. The Council is expected to adopt conclusions on the fiscal sustainability report for 2015, which was issued in January 2016. The report provides an overview of short, medium and long-term fiscal sustainability in the EU member states.
