Navigating EU BT 21

The European Commission’s ambitious package for tax reform “Business Taxation for the 21st Century” (BT 21) sets out a framework for transforming the tax system over the coming years, as well as mechanisms for enabling “fair and sustainable” growth.

Against the backdrop of ongoing global discussions proposing wide-reaching tax reform, we expect tax to continue to be headline news.

With major changes to the tax landscape on the horizon, our team can help you navigate through the developments as they unfold.

You can also listen to our team of international tax experts discussing the EU BT 21 package in our podcast.
