On 4 August 2020, the European Commission submitted a proposal for a Council Decision to continue authorising Spain to apply total exemptions from or partial reductions in the tax known as ‘Arbitrio sobre las Importaciones y Entregas de Mercancías en las Islas Canarias’ (AIEM) in respect of some products that are produced locally in the Canary Islands (listed in the Annex of the Decision). The new derogation would run until 2027, and would be amended to establish criteria for the identification of eligible products, a new mechanism for establishing the maximum permitted tax differential and new monitoring arrangements.
