State aid

Poland’s tax on retail sector (C-562-19 P) and Hungary’s tax on advertisement (C-596-19 P)

On March 16, 2021, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) upheld judgments of the EU General Court finding that a Polish tax on the retail sector and a Hungarian tax on advertisement do not infringe EU law on State aid.

In 2016 Poland introduced a tax on the retail sector which was based on the monthly turnover of any retailer from the sale of goods to consumers when turnover exceeds PLN 17 million (approximately EUR 4 million). The rate of tax was 0.8 percent on turnover between PLN 17 million and 170 million and a rate of 1.4 percent for the portion of monthly turnover above PLN 170 million.

In 2014, Hungary enacted an advertisement tax, requiring broadcasters or publishers of advertisements (newspapers, audiovisual media, billposters) to pay tax at a progressive rate on annual net turnover generated by the broadcasting or publication of advertisements in Hungary,

with six rates of tax between 0 percent and 50 percent. Those rates of tax were subsequently replaced by two tax rates: 0 percent for the portion of the taxable amount below HUF 100 million (approximately EUR 312,000), and 5.3 percent for the portion of the taxable amount above that threshold. For the first tax year, as a transitional measure, the law gave taxpayers whose profits before tax in 2013 were zero or negative the option to deduct from their taxable base 50% of the losses carried forward from previous years.

In the Commission’s view, both taxes were incompatible with the common market because they granted undertakings with lower turnover an advantage in the form of a lower tax rate, and therefore constituted State aid incompatible with the internal market.

Poland and Hungary challenged the EC’s decision before the General Court of the European Union (‘General Court’). In its 2019 judgments, the General Court annulled the EC’s decision, finding no evidence in either tax regime of any selective advantage and therefore no State aid in favor of undertakings with lower turnover.

The EC brought an appeal before the CJEU, which Advocate General (‘AG’) Kokott proposed should be dismissed in her opinion (PDF 256 KB) issued on October 15, 2020. On March 16, 2021, the CJEU agreed and dismissed the EC’s appeals and issued judgments upholding the General Court’s decisions.

CJEU judgement on European Commission’s appeal regarding Spanish football clubs’ State aid

On March 4, 2021, the CJEU issued its judgement in the European Commission v Fútbol Club Barcelona (C 362/19 P) case. The decision largely follows Advocate General (AG) Pitruzzella’s opinion – see E-news Issue 122 for more details.

The case concerns an appeal (brought by the European Commission) against a judgement released by the General Court of the EU whereby the Commission’s decision to classify a tax regime applicable to four Spanish professional football clubs as State aid was rejected. Under the disputed regime, sports clubs were classified as non-profit legal persons and enjoyed a special rate of income tax compared to other clubs organized as public limited sports companies (SLCs).

The CJEU held that the General Court wrongly found that the Commission’s decision against the tax regime refers both to a State aid scheme and to individual aid. In the CJEU’s view, the disputed provisions can benefit each of the eligible football clubs in an abstract manner (and the fact that it was granted individually is not relevant). 

The CJEU also ruled that the General Court erred when it found fault with the European Commission for failing to examine properly the extent to which specific facts and circumstances could influence the dispute tax regime, in order to determine whether an advantage exists for the purposes of Article 107(1) TFEU. The CJEU noted that it was impossible for the European Commission to assess ex ante the level and actual impact of the advantage actually conferred on each of its beneficiaries. However, the impossibility of determining, at the time of the adoption of an aid scheme, the amount of aid granted cannot prevent the Commission from finding that that scheme could result in an advantage to the beneficiaries. Instead, the Commission is required to assess whether the scheme has actually conferred an advantage on its beneficiaries taken individually only at the stage of the potential recovery of the aid (ex post analysis).

Therefore, the Court ruled that the judgement under appeal should be set aside.

Informal ECOFIN video conference of March 2021 – digital economy and own resources update

On March 16, 2021, Finance Ministers of the EU Member States exchanged views on the state of play and way forward on tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy and took stock of the current economic situation and outlook.

In the area of digitalized economy, the Ministers reconfirmed their support for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) initiative and their readiness to engage in reaching a global agreement by mid-2021. They also noted readiness to examine solutions for the EU, if no progress is made by the OECD. Both the European Commission and the Portuguese Presidency of the Council confirmed that the digital levy initiative currently being considered by the Commission – see KPMG’s TaxNewflash for more details, represents a “separate instrument which should not be linked with the corporate tax rules that are being negotiated in the G20/OECD” (see João Leão’s - Portugal’s Minister for Finance – statement)

The European Commission presented its communication on fiscal policy response to COVID-19. The Ministers agreed with the Commissions’ view that policies should remain supportive, but Member States are expected to adapt them at an “appropriate time” to ensure mid-term fiscal sustainability. The Commission is expected to propose detailed fiscal policy guidance as part of their European Semester spring package. For more details on the communication please refer to E-news Issue 127. Ministers also took stock of the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Facility and progress in the ratification of the own resources decision.

For more information please refer to the press release.


Debate following the OpenLux investigation

On March 10, 2021, Members of the European Parliament exchanged views on reforming the EU policy framework in light of the OpenLux news – a recent journalist investigation on potential tax avoidance, conducted based on publicly available information on ultimate beneficial ownership.

Among other comments, members of the European Parliament called for a swift introduction of the public country-by-country reporting rules.

In his opening remarks, Commissioner Gentiloni announced an upcoming revision of The Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive, aimed at tackling the challenges triggered by the use of so-called “shell companies”. In the context of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, the Commission would give due consideration to tax reforms targeting aggressive tax planning when analyzing the national plans submitted by Member States. The Commissioner also noted that if no agreement is reached at the OECD level on Pillar 2, the Commission is committed to take action to ensure a minimum level of taxation.

For more details please see the press release or watch a recording of the debate.

Resolution on a WTO-compatible EU carbon border adjustment mechanism

On March 10, 2021, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the EU carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM).

The Parliament reconfirmed their strong support for pushing forward ambitious EU climate legislation, aiming for the EU and its Member States to become climate neutral in 2050, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with 60% by 2030.

The resolution also notes the support for a mechanism that would act as an incentive for both EU and third country companies to produce clean products, without the risk of potential carbon leakage by shifting production capacities outside the EU or by importing semi-finished or end products not covered under CBAM. As a result, the Parliament would support legislation which puts a carbon price on certain goods imported from outside the EU, but highlighted the need for a World Trade Organization (WTO) compatible solution which is not misused as a tool to enhance protectionism. 

The Parliament stressed that the CBAM must be accompanied by the removal of environmentally harmful subsidies granted to energy-intensive industries and calls for the Commission to evaluate Member States’ legislation in this area. Further on, the mechanism should be part of a broader EU industrial strategy and should be linked to the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS).

As next steps, the European Commission is expected to present a CBAM proposal by the end of the second quarter of 2021, as part of the wider European Green Deal – see E-news Issue 116.

For more information on the adopted resolution please refer to the press release.

Recommended changes to reporting requirements for digital businesses (DAC7)

On March 10, 2021, the European Parliament recommended changes to DAC7 – an initiative which aims to amend the EU Directive on Administrative Cooperation by allowing Member States' tax authorities to collect and automatically exchange information on income earned by sellers on digital platforms (see ETF 437).

Suggested changes include:

  • a criterion based on which, when registering in one single Member State, non-EU platforms would have to opt for a jurisdiction where they have substantial economic activities. Harmonized sanctions should apply against platforms which do not comply with the reporting obligations; 
  • quicker exchange of requested information;
  • a new provision under which, starting January 1, 2022, no advance pricing agreements should be concluded with third countries that do not permit information disclosure to the tax authorities of the other Member States.

Rapporteur Sven Giegold (Germany) expressed disappointment on the Council’s decision to move forward with the proposal without waiting for the Parliament’s point of view (non-binding), as well as for postponing the effective date by one year as opposed to the initial proposal.

For more details please refer to the press release.

On March 17, 2021, the FISC Subcommittee reviewed a series of amendments to the European Parliament’s draft own-initiative report on "Digital Taxation: OECD negotiations, tax residency of digital companies and a possible European digital tax”.

The report aims to present the European Parliament's views ahead of the final negotiations of a global reform within the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework. In total, 243 amendments to the draft report are tabled, ranging from concerns that Pillar I potential revenue increases could be limited, to calls for the Council to move forward on the common consolidated corporate tax base initiative. The draft report, as well as the suggested amendments, will be discussed in the upcoming ECON meeting of March 23, 2021.

The text of the draft resolution, as well as proposed amendments are available on the Parliament’s website.

Toolkit on tax treaty negotiations

On March 10, 2021, the OECD announced that the “Platform for Collaboration on Tax” – a joint initiative of the International Monetary Fund, OECD, UN and World Bank, released the final version of a “toolkit” intended to serve as guidance for developing countries when negotiating tax treaties.

OECD looking into simplification options for Pillar 2

On March 5, 2021, during a webcast organized by the US branch of the International Fiscal Association, John Peterson (Head of the OECD’s Aggressive Tax Planning unit) noted that two simplification measures for the Pillar 2 calculation are being considered. One simplification option considered is to allow multinationals to use the data provided to tax administrations in their Country-by-Country reports for the purposes of the computation of the jurisdictional effective tax rates under the global anti-base-erosion (GLOBE) rules. A second option under consideration is a de minimis profit exclusion provision, which would eliminate from the GLOBE regime jurisdictions that have less than 2.5 percent, or EUR 100,000, of an in-scope multinational’s profits.

The OECD expressed their intention to reach an agreement on the two pillars in an Inclusive Framework meeting tentatively scheduled for the end of June.

Czech Republic

EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive

The Czech authorities issued guidance on issues resulting from the implementation of the EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD). The document aims to clarify several practical issues related to the restricted deductibility of excess borrowing costs and exit taxation.

Among others, the following clarifications were brought: 

  • borrowing costs only include foreign exchange differences associated with payables arising as a result of selected borrowing costs (e.g. related to contractual interest). Foreign exchange differences related to the principal will not be included in the borrowing cost;
  • the exit tax applicable for certain cross-border transfers without a change of ownership would apply to all assets of the taxpayer, including inventory and assets reported off-balance sheet.

Development cooperation funding restrictions for tax non-responsible companies

On March 4, 2021, the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs published a policy which aims to restrict the grant of development cooperation funding (an initiative where public funds are available for projects which promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries) for companies which do not operate in a tax responsible manner. Specifically, companies receiving funding must commit to the following principles:

  • refrain from using aggressive tax planning;
  • refrain from utilizing tax havens;
  • should not require tax holidays for themselves (as they distort fair competition). However, companies are allowed to benefit from tax holidays or other incentives generally available for all investors;
  • transparently disclose information, as required by the tax authorities in the countries where they operate.

For more details please refer to the Finish government’s press release

DAC6 guidance published

In March 2021, the Irish revenue issued updated guidance on DAC6 reporting (PDF 794 KB). Key updates include:

  • removal of the practice allowing an intermediary not to disclose information about a person to whom they made a reportable cross-border arrangement available, where the person indicated that they would not be proceeding with it;

Withholding tax exemption on dividend payments to Swiss parent company

On March 2, 2021 the Italian Revenue Agency published Ruling no. 135 regarding the application of the exemption from withholding tax on dividends paid to a Swiss parent company, which is qualified as a holding company. Pursuant to Article 9 of the 2004 agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation, one of the conditions to be satisfied in order for a Swiss parent company to benefit from the exemption is to be subject to corporate income tax, without any exemption. This requirement was not previously satisfied by Swiss holding companies since they benefitted from a local tax exemption regime.

However, following the repeal of the exemption regime with effect from January 1, 2020, the new Ruling provides that the condition of being subject to corporate income tax, without any exemption, should be met in the case of Swiss holding companies and, consequently, the withholding tax exemption may be applied with effect from the same date, as long as all the other conditions for the exemption laid down by Article 9 are met.

Digital services tax update

Italy's Ministry of Economy and Finance announced a deadline extension for the domestic Digital Service Tax (DST). The deadline for payment of the DST has been postponed from February 16 to May 16 and for the DST declaration, from March 31 to June 30.

Updated guidance on Mutual Agreement Procedures

On March 11, 2021, the Luxembourg tax authorities published updated guidance (PDF 261 KB) on the implementation of Mutual Agreement Procedures (MAP) under bilateral tax treaties concluded by Luxembourg.

Thus, if the proposed solution involves a change in taxation in Luxembourg, the implementation of the change will be subject to the approval of the taxpayer requesting the MAP. In addition, the taxpayer will have to renounces all legal avenues related to the dispute settled under the MAP, both in Luxembourg and abroad.

For more details please refer to KPMG’s TaxNewsflash.


Third amendment to dividend withholding tax proposal

On March 12, 2021,a private member’s bill on the “Conditional Final Settlement of Dividend Withholding Tax Emergency Act”, which was submitted in July 2020, was amended for a third time. The proposal is for a final dividend withholding tax settlement obligation for cross-border relocations of a taxpayer’s registered office and for mergers, split-offs/divisions, and share mergers if, as a result of these actions, the (deferred) profit reserves of the withholding agent established in the Netherlands is transferred to a jurisdiction that is not aligned with the Dutch dividend withholding tax.

The current amendments are not significant, and reflect mainly technical changes or improvements. As the bill was submitted shortly before the upcoming parliamentary elections, it’s future remains uncertain.

For more details please refer to KPMG’s TaxNewsflash.

Consultation on mismatches when applying the arm’s length principle.

A public consultation was launched in March 2021, focused on addressing mismatches arising when applying the arm’s length principle.

The public consultation ends April 2, 2021.

For more details please refer to KPMG’s Tax Newsflash.
