made by the
EU Commission on 28 September
2011 regarding an EU directive
on a common
system of financial transaction taxation in the
27 Member States of the
EU have been
debated widely in the three
weeks since they were presented.
The presentation of the proposed
Directive (the "Directive"), together with proposals to amend Directive
2008/7/EC concerning indirect taxes on the raising
of capital, represent the latest
stage in a series of
announcements by EU authorities directed towards ensuring that the
European financial sector should "contribute more fairly" towards the costs of
addressing and rectifying the current European financial crisis. A series of
conclusions from the European Council,
communications addressed to the European
Parliament and EU Commission staff
working papers and consultations throughout 2010 and 2011 have
created a platform upon which
the relative merits of various
options for taxing the financial
sector have been analysed.
