The Council adopted conclusions on tax evasion and tax fraud, highlighting the need for a combination of efforts at national, EU and global levels, and confirming support for work within the G8, the G20 and the OECD on the automatic exchange of information.


The Council adopted a mandate for the Commission to negotiate updated savings tax agreements with Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Andorra and San Marino. The aim is to ensure that the five countries continue to apply measures that are equivalent to the EU's directive on the taxation of savings income, which is being amended. 
These issues will be reviewed by the European Council at its meeting on 22 May. 
The Council adopted a decision authorising the Czech Republic and Poland to apply measures derogating from Article 5 of directive 2006/112/EC on the territorial application of VAT as regards the construction and maintenance of border bridges and common road sections between the two member states. The aim is to simplify the procedure for collecting VAT with respect to the construction and maintenance of the border bridges and of common road sections of the two countries.
