Tax and capital flight

Stop Capital Flight and Promote Equal Competition through Transparency and Taxation

  • Three simple tax mechanisms are the only ones needed in order to equate the taxation of multinational companies with national companies
  • Any country can enact these mechanisms as they are changes to the internal tax code
  • The three mechanisms are precise as they target specific classes of transactions and are not based on parameters or estimates.
  • The mechanisms are unique in that no country enacting them will trespass on any other country’s tax base

English

The litmus test is served. Snorre Valen (SV) asks politicians in Parliament to sign a representative proposal for extended country-by-country reporting. Since the Panama Papers, this is one of the most important measures which is not in place yet. The reason for this is the lack of follow-up by the Ministry of Finance on country-by-country reporting for accounting purposes.

Opinion piece: Still protecting the tax havens

English

The consequence is that companies are not required to give information from tax havens, because payments to such places will be less than NOK 800,000, writes Mona Thowsen in the opinion piece. Photo: Kathie M Ceballos CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 Flickr

The Ministry of Finance has not followed up on Parliament´s request, so Norwegian companies do not have to submit information from tax havens.​
