Anti tax avoidance package
The Council will be called on to agree its position (the 'general approach') on the draft anti tax avoidance directive, which aims to address some of the most common aggressive tax planning practices. Its goals are to create a minimum protection against corporate tax avoidance in the EU and to ensure a fairer environment for business.

The Council is also expected to formally adopt a directive on the exchange of tax-related information on multinational companies, following an agreement reached on the text in March 2016.

In addition, the Council will adopt conclusions on the Commission communication on an external taxation strategy and on the Commission recommendation on measures against tax treaty abuse.

The two directives, the communication and the recommendation are part of the 'anti tax avoidance package' - a number of EU initiatives that aim to make corporate taxation in the EU fairer, simpler and more effective.

VAT action plan
The Council will discuss the Commission's VAT action plan, 'Towards a single EU VAT area'. The plan, published on 7 April 2016, sets out ideas for a simpler, more fraud-proof and more business-friendly EU VAT system.

The Council will also look into a European Court of Auditors special report, 'Tackling intra-Community VAT fraud: more action needed'. The report contains audit findings and recommendations for the European Commission on how to improve the efficiency of the EU's system for preventing cross-border VAT fraud.
The Council is expected to adopt conclusions on these two documents.

European Semester
The Council will discuss in-depth reviews of macroeconomic imbalances in 19 EU member states, which were published by the Commission in March 2016. It will also review how its country-specific recommendations for 2015 have been implemented in the member states. The Council will adopt conclusions.
According to the criteria of the macroeconomic imbalances procedure, in 2016

  • 6 countries are not experiencing economic imbalances (Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Hungary, Romania and the UK
  • 7 countries are experiencing imbalances (Finland, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden
  • 6 member states are experiencing excessive imbalances (Bulgaria, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus and Portugal)

The in-depth review was deemed unnecessary in 8 member states: the Czech Republic, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Malta and Poland.

Conference on Missing Persons, Missing Information

Europe Building, Amsterdam

Every year thousands of people go missing involuntarily in the EU. Such cases often involve several EU countries, so sharing of information across borders is vital. On Missing Children's Day the Netherlands will host a conference to improve European information exchange in missing persons cases.
In order to identify and find missing persons as quickly as possible, European authorities must be able to respond rapidly. This requires quick and reliable information sharing between EU countries. The Netherlands is to organise this conference as part of an initiative to improve information exchange.
Policymakers and experts convene to explore the possibility of setting up a European platform of national police contact points. They will also discuss the potential of public participation in the search for missing persons, via social and other media or early warning systems like Amber Alert and the Netherlands' Burgernet.
