PODCAST: The European Union and the Digital Economy

Trust Bloomberg BNA's Premier International Tax offering for the news and guidance to navigate the complex tax treaty networks and business regulations.

Gary D. Sprague of Baker McKenzie joins Talking Tax with host Dolores Gregory for a discussion of the EU’s efforts to tax the digital economy.

Gary is a regular contributor to the TM International Journal. In a recent column, he raised concerns about an EU proposal to adopt special rules for taxing companies that engage in business online—one creating a ‘digital’ permanent establishment and the other imposing a special levy on specific transactions – both of which represent a retreat from the arm’s length standard.

In this interview, Gary discusses the problems these proposals raise, not just for e-commerce but for all companies that do business across borders.
