On the same day, the European Parliament provided Briefing on EU Legislation in Progress regarding public country-by-country reporting.
PANA Committee's findings on discrepancies between the practices revealed in the Panama Papers and EU law, notably the Directives on Anti-money Laundering (AMLD) and on Administrative Cooperation in the field of Taxation (DAC), have been presented in the report. It includes a factual part collecting and analysing the evidence taken into account by the Committee to arrive at its findings as well as the conclusions identifying contraventions of EU law and instances of maladministration, the Committee informed.
The draft motion for Parliament recommendation to the Council and the Commission contain the co-rapporteurs' recommendations on how to improve the EU framework regarding, inter alia, Anti-money laundering and administrative cooperation in the area of taxation.
