Fair taxation is central to the European Union's social and economic model.

Taxation plays a crucial role in upholding a strong and sustainable economy, a thriving business environment and a just social model. However, tax avoidance and abuse undermine the social contract between citizens and their governments, as well as pose a threat to fair competition.

To foster active knowledge exchange to tackle tax abuse and avoidance, the European Commission is organising 5 seminars in Latvia, Austria, France, Ireland and Italy over the course of 2018.

These seminars aim to bring together national policy-makers, civil society organizations, academics and business representatives, as well as members of the European institutions.
