Taxation Trends in the European Union

Source: Eurostat

From the Preface:

Taxation affects the lives of every one of us. It shapes the relationship between citizens, businesses and the state, and has an impact on politics, the economy and society. In the European Union, many policy makers, academics and ordinary citizens are interested to know more about how Member States’ tax revenues and tax systems compare with each other. The 2015 edition of Taxation trends in the European Union, now in its ninth issue, provides some answers to these questions. The aim of the report is to give an overview of trends in taxation revenues, tax structures and reforms over recent years...

The report is structured in separate country chapters covering the 28 EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. For each country, statistics are provided on total tax revenues as a percentage of GDP and their main components for the years 2004 to 2013. These are supplemented by factual tables presenting the latest tax reforms in each country and the main features of the national tax systems for personal and corporate taxes, VAT, social contributions and wealth and transaction taxes.
