Taxation and SMEs
Most EU SMEs consider taxation matters to be the most burdensome policy area that affects them. The Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs carries out studies and projects in the field of SME taxation to find out how their tax situation could be improved.
While large enterprises can usually call on tax experts for advice on how to optimise their net profits, SMEs have many difficulties regarding tax matters, for example:
- indirect taxation (VAT)
- direct taxation (income, capital, double taxation etc.)
- tax compliance costs; the administrative burden that arises from tax rules.
