Talouselämä writes that Finland’s Minister of Finance Petteri Orpo assures that EU is doing all it can to root out tax evasion. He says that several tax proposals aiming to eradicate tax evasions are under work in the EU. There are several proposals being processed in the EU which are aimed to block aggressive tax planning measures and remove loopholes in taxation. Finland is not excited by a separate European solution, and Orpo stressed importance of global cooperation. EU Ministers of Finance will discuss financial supervision today. Finland is opposed to almost all measures proposed by the Commission.
