Letter from ERT to Commissioner Pierre Moscovici

Dialogue with the European Commission

ERT encourages the European Commission to improve the competitiveness of the EU fiscal system and work towards the following policy targets:

• Efficient and predictable tax systems
• Easing the administrative burden to front tax charges

This includes a request for a new set of rules on R&D tax incentives, which should be designed for a large scope of innovations (eg. digital technology, artificial intelligence, etc). Such an approach could even be achieved within a Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) framework as in its current planning state major improvements are needed to make the CCCTB framework for companies wishing to invest in Europe.
