  • [01] Direct Taxation : Commission decides to refer Belgium, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal to the Court over discriminatory taxation of outbound dividends and asks Latvia to end such discriminatory taxation

    The European Commission decided to refer Belgium, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal to the European Court of Justice for their rules under which certain dividend payments to foreign companies (outbound dividends) may be taxed more heavily than dividend payments to domestic companies (domestic dividends). The Commission considers that these rules are contrary to the EC Treaty and the EEA Agreement, as they restrict both the free movement of capital and the freedom of establishment. At the same time the Commission sent Latvia a formal request to amend its tax legislation concerning outbound dividend payments to companies. The request is in the form of a 'reasoned opinion' under Article 226 of the EC Treaty. If Latvia does not reply satisfactorily to the reasoned opinion within two months the Commission may refer the matter to the European Court of Justice.

    [02] Fiscalité directe : la Commission décide de traduire la Belgique devant la Cour de justice pour taxation discriminatoire des dividendes entrants

    La Commission européenne a décidé de traduire la Belgique devant la Cour de justice européenne en raison de l'imposition discriminatoire des dividendes versés par des sociétés étrangères des investisseurs privés belges (dividendes entrants). En vertu de la réglementation fiscale belge, il n'existe pas de double imposition pour les dividendes domestiques alors que c'est le cas pour les dividendes entrants. La Commission considère que cette différence de traitement est contraire la liberté d'établissement et la libre circulation des capitaux garanties par le traité CE.

    [03] Statement by European Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn on the assassination of the journalist Hrant Dink in Turkey (19/01)

    "I am shocked and saddened by this brutal act of violence. Hrant Dink was a respected intellectual who defended his views with conviction and contributed to an open public debate. He was a campaigner for freedom of expression in Turkey. I trust that the Turkish authorities will fully investigate this crime and will bring the perpetrators to justice. I want to express my deepest condolences to his family."
