Swedish taxes - How do they involve the EU?

What impact has Sweden’s EU membership had on Swedish taxes? Is there more to the issue than merely capital gains taxes? Should we introduce harmonised company taxes? How can the EU member states handle phenomena such as diesel shopping and the threat posed by climate change without majority vote for environmental taxes? Would it not be more transparent if the EU contribution were an EU tax?

This is the sixth of nine lunch debates that the European Parliament's Information Office in Sweden has arranged together with the Swedish Riksdag on EU questions that concern our everyday life, under the theme "EU 50 years of cooperation". The lunch debates are all taking place at the democracy workshop, Västerlånggatan 1 in Stockholm, from 11.30 to 13.00. Registration at Registration for the debate on 19 April must be made at the latest on 18 April. A sandwich will be served to everyone who has registered in time for the debate.
