Despite its defeat at Apple earlier this week, the European Commission does not seem to change its approach to the taxation of technology companies. An EU observer shared comments from senior EU officials.
“We do not consider it normal for the largest companies to get away with a tax of up to one percent,” European Commission executive vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis told reporters. “It is simply not sustainable from the point of view of tax fairness, it is not sustainable from the point of view of public revenue and must be remedied,” he said. Paolo Gentiloni, the European Commissioner for the Economy, made similar comments. “A single decision does not discourage our commitment in this direction. I would say the opposite. “
