On 26 March 2019, after the debate and the vote took place at the March II Plenary part-session in Strasbourg, the European Parliament issued “European Parliament resolution of 26 March 2019 on financial crimes, tax evasion and tax avoidance” (Link).
The final recommendations from the Special Committee on Financial Crimes, Tax Evasion, and Tax Avoidance (“TAX3”) have been part of the debate (Link-Blog). In the course of its mandate, the TAX3 Committee met 34 times and organized four fact-finding missions to Washington, Latvia, the Isle of Man, Estonia and Denmark. Hundreds of experts were heard, including Commissioners, Ministers, prosecutors, investigative journalists, anti-money laundering- and tax experts, accountants, bankers and NGO representatives. Moreover, the Committee has commissioned six academic studies on subjects of special interest.
