  • Brave New Deal? Key safeguards missing from Commission proposals

    12 Apr 2018
    Consumer affairs

  • US business concerned over EU digital tax proposal

    21 Mar 2018
    All Committees
    The American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) understands the public interest in digitalisation as it continues to change the economy. We agree there needs to be a serious, structured conversation about how new business models should be taxed. However, we believe that the conversation should take place in a multilateral context in order to ensure widespread agreement. The EU can bring valuable expertise to the conversation which is now being initiated at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), but we are concerned that the short-term measures proposed today by the European Commission may make it more difficult for that process to succeed.
