EU corporations underpaying taxes, says Greens report

22 Jan 2023  |  www.dw.com
The Greens in the European Parliament have revealed that large companies in the EU are not paying their required taxes, with Bulgaria being the only state where corporations pay the statutory rate. The report, presented by the Greens' finance spokesman Sven Giegold, was based on data from the Orbis database and compiled by tax expert Petr Jansky. It highlights significant discrepancies between statutory tax rates and actual taxes paid, with Luxembourg, Hungary, the Netherlands, and Austria having the largest differentials. Germany's corporations pay slightly above average, while Greece and Ireland's corporations pay more than the statutory rate. The Greens advocate for tax transparency and country-by-country reporting to prevent profit booking in low-tax countries. Ahead of the EU elections, the Greens emphasize the need for the EU to address tax avoidance and encourage social and environmental responsibility among corporations. Anton Hofreiter, leader of the Greens in the German parliament, criticized corporate practices that undermine social cohesion and called for a democratization of the economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Franco-German Treaty of Aachen: A New Chapter in European Relations

24 Jul 2020  |  www.dw.com
The Treaty of Aachen, signed by President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Angela Merkel, is a continuation of the Franco-German alliance, building on the Elysee Treaty signed 56 years prior. It outlines cooperation in defense, security, diplomacy, economy, climate, and institutional cooperation, aiming to create a common military culture and potentially a European army. The treaty also supports Germany's bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council and promotes cross-border relations and bilingualism.

The treaty includes plans for various projects, such as a Franco-German economic zone and a digital platform.
