On Tuesday, 19 September from 15:00 to 16:30 in the European Parliament in Brussels, a public hearing on the “New EU common system for the avoidance of double taxation and prevention of tax abuse in the area of withholding taxes” will take place.
The hearing aims to address the burdensome withholding tax refund procedures for cross-border payments, resulting in significant barriers to cross-border investment in the EU and double taxation. A number of distinguished speakers will be given a chance to address The European Commission’s proposal on improving withholding tax procedures – the ‘Faster and Safer Relief of Excess Withholding Taxes’ (‘FASTER’) proposal. Among those speaking will be Christiane Hölz of DSW, our German national member organization,
