Concrete measures for tax justice for development

Intermón’s policy paper outlines specific policy asks for the Spanish government to push at the EU level during its presidency, starting on January 2010. These include the following: - To support and defend within the G20 and prior to the IMF; - World Bank Spring Meetings, the setting up of a multilateral and automatic information exchange models; - To support the inclusion of a Financial Transaction Tax at the International level and to include during 2010, at least in the Euro-zone, a Currency Transaction Tax of 0,005% to finance ODA; - To promote a reform in the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB) governance in order to increase its accountability and the political control from the EU and from the National Authorities; - To ensure that the coming IFRS 8 review (in 2010) becomes the opportunity to bind Multinational Corporations (MNCs) to submit, in the annual report, their accounting information on country by country (C-B-C) basis and to ensure that the already engaged procedure for a new IASB norm for the Extractive Industries (replacing the current IFRS 6) will include a compulsory C-B-C reporting requirement for MNCs; - To support the introduction of C-B-C reporting as a compulsory requirement for MNCs of all sectors through the Directive 2004/109/EC (TOD Directive) review, that will probably take place during the first half of 2010.
