CESI again a member of the EU Platform for Tax Good Governance

CESI has been selected by the European Commission as one of 15 non-government members to become part of the EU's Platform for Tax Good Governance for the time from April 2016 to June 2019. CESI has already been a member in the past and can now continue to work in the Platform in the future too.

This is the result of a selection procedure by the European Commission following an open call for applications for non-government members.

The Platform for Tax Good Governance is an expert advisory group to assist the Commission in developing initiatives to promote good governance in tax matters in third countries, to tackle aggressive tax planning and to identify and address double taxation. It brings together expert representatives from business, tax professional and civil society organisations and enables a structured dialogue and exchange of expertise which can feed into a more coordinated and effective EU approach against tax evasion and avoidance.

CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger said: “As a trade union confederation representing numerous national-level tax administrations’ trade unions, CESI has a keen interest to facilitate transparent tax systems in which tax evasion has no place and tax administrators can effectively perform their duty – collecting all due taxes. I am glad CESI can continue to bring its sector-specific expertise to the Platform.”

Further information about the Platform is available on the European Commission’s website.
