ICC United Kingdom’s Chris Southworth discusses EU ‘digital tax’ on BBC News

Following the European Union’s proposal to implement a three percent tax on tech companies with global revenues over US$750m globally and $50m in the EU, BBC News’s Vishala Sri-Pathma‏ asks Chris Southworth, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) United Kingdom, his thoughts on the ruling.

Southworth explains that the most important issue regarding digital tax is that ruling is internationally fair, consistent and transparent across all sectors. Moreover, as an increasing number of companies are operating at the global level – supported by the free movement of data – Southworth elaborates that ruling should be decided at the international level, such as at the OECD, rather than regionally.
