In my opinion is the amount we have to pay to receive a package we bought outside the EU ridiculous. Its an almost criminal way of making money on things that are already expensive enough. In a world that is all about globalization this is an out dated concept. We should encourage the inter continental trades. Instead of acting like a corrupt money machine.
In April 2016, it was clarified that only Portuguese had 69 billion euros in tax havens, with 36 billion euros in Switzerland. Officials of Gabriel Zucman, an economics professor at the University of California, who have estimated 8% of the world’s wealth in offshore centers. More: according to Zucman, 80% of the value was not declared or accounted for. Basically, according to the professor, this figure was substantially lost per year, in tax revenues, about 180 billion euros. In Europe alone, then, 71 billion were lost. We need to force the banks pay a generous amount of tax when they create of an offshore company and make sure that every transfer pay a little just contribution. What Do you think about it?
European Union is a union of states which should cooperate to establish new taxation standards and full transparency. Secrets of big companies revealed by whistleblowers shining light on the current situation. Millionaires aren’t contributing to societies, big corporations uses loopholes to avoid taxation. This fact is unacceptable. It is important to liquidate tax heavens in Europe, implement new platform for financial transfers, create new laws to protect whistleblowers who are revealing truth about the illegal practises of companies. Fair Europe is possible.
Actually he is completely right in his statement! (see link below) the European Parliament and European Commission should already introduce a bill to ensure all member states, start taxing such #software, routines and protocols intended to reduce human presence at the work place! All members at once to avoid #taxhavens, as with the #Amazon #Apple case within EU.

Recent financial scandals and whistleblowers have revealed the extent of the fraud led by multinational companies and wealthy individuals in order to avoid contributing to our societies. We argue in favour of much more wealth redistribution, legal sanctions to be put in place internationally against companies using these practices, and we encourage the European commission to keep chasing the big corporations which use loopholes in European legislation to avoid taxation. We call for the immediate implementation of the Financial Transaction Tax and for the establishment of common standards regarding taxes on corporate benefits.
European countries should cooperate so as to avoid tax competition and establish high taxation standards. Tax havens for big companies should no longer exist in the EU and no cooperation shall be entertained between the EU and tax heavens. An increase in transparency and taxation of profits in the countries where they are made will contribute to a more just Europe. Finally, a minor EU tax for companies acting within the single market, could be established, and create the basis for a European fiscal revenue.
