Tax unfairness in the European Union: Towards greater solidarity in fighting tax evasion

Towards a fair tax system at the UE

In this report, drawn up jointly by the Polish Economic Institute (PIE) and Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK), you will find interesting conclusions, figures and a list of suggestions for solving the tax evasion issue at the EU. 

Please find below some of the main highlights:

  • Belgium, Cyprus, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta and the Netherlands are the beneficiaries of this artificial profit shifting while France, Germany and the UK suffer the highest loss from this practice. 
  • The report shows how the evolution of the tax systems in the EU in recent decades is an example of the ‘race to the bottom’ phenomenon. This means that a growing part of public goods must be financed by other parts of the tax base, which at the end is one of the reasons for rising inequalities and a sense of injustice within European societies
