In recent years, fight tax evasions and tax avoidance has become a priority of the European Commission. Encouraged by various leaks and sensational cases, public pressure to efficiently close loopholes has been unprecedented. Strong feelings of growing injustice and unfair taxation policies have added fuel to the debate.  This CESI@noon will give insights into the work of politicians, practitioners, civil servants and trade unions in tax leaks and state aid cases.
 
How is tax avoidance related to state aid control and why do competition enforcers suddenly become involved in tax matters, normally under the competence of the Member States? What is the main finding in the recent decisions of the European Commission and where are the limits? What are the key experiences and demands to further proceed? What are the fundamentals interests at stake? How does state aid control dovetail with the legislative agenda? Which administrative elements need further strengthening? And finally, is there an honest societal and political consensus to efficiently fight tax avoidance at EU level?
