The Council held a first discussion on a package of proposals aimed at strengthening EU rules to prevent corporate tax avoidance.
The package is intended as a coordinated response to aggressive tax practices deployed by large companies. It also sets out to implement standards approved by the OECD. 
The presidency has set an ambitious timetable for work on the package. It foresees political agreement before June 2016 on:
  • a proposal to boost the exchange of tax-related information on the activities of multinational companies;
  • proposed rules to tackle some of the most prevalent tax avoidance practices.
Work will be taken in phases, the ambition being to reach an agreement on the first directive in March and to move as rapidly as possible on the other elements.
