On 21 September 2017, the European Commission (EC) issued a Communication (non-binding, strategic policy paper) on the taxation of the digital economy. The Communication will serve as a basis for further discussion among EU leaders at the Tallinn EU Digital Summit of 29 September. The Communication calls for a common EU approach with a view to ensuring “fair and effective taxation across the Digital Single Market”. The EC already announced last weekend that it will also possibly present a draft proposal for an EU Directive in spring 2018.
