The European Commission is publishing a call for proposals to enhance the involvement of civil society in the advocacy, design and implementation of EU actions to combat tax evasion, tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning and to promote fair taxation.
The abundance of money laundering, tax evasion and avoidance revelations over the last few years has significantly shaken the confidence of European citizens, businesses and trade unions in the robustness and fairness of EU rules against tax fraud, evasion and aggressive tax planning.
Therefore, it is all the more important to ensure that stakeholders have a voice in designing initiatives aiming at strengthening European rules against tax evasion and tax avoidance.
The European Commission is publishing a third and final call for proposals to manage and lead the EU Tax Observatory.
The available budget is EUR 1 200 000. Under this call for proposals, the EU grant may not exceed 95% of the total eligible costs of the action.
The winner of the grant is expected to:
- Manage and ensure the smooth running of the EU Tax Observatory;
- Perform and promote original, high-quality research in the area of tax evasion, tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning, with a focus on corporate income taxation;
- Feed, improve and disseminate a public repository of data and analysis on tax evasion, tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning, with a focus on corporate income taxation;
- Be an active voice in the EU and international debate on tax evasion, tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning, notably through the organisation of conferences and workshops.
The deadline to apply is 31 March 2023. You can find more information on the activities, timing and eligibility criteria here.
