EU Financial Institutions Face New Reporting Rules 

Global Tax Adviser


April 23, 2013


Financial institutions in the European Union will soon have to begin country-by-country reporting of tax payments made to governments, and will also have to comply with stronger bank solvency and liquidity requirements and a cap on bankers' bonuses.

Proposed amendments
The European Parliament approved a package of amendments on April 16, 2013. The legislative process to implement these changes is not yet complete but they could come into force on January 1, 2014 if the process is complete by June 30, 2013. If not, the amendments may be effective July 1, 2014.


The country-by-country reporting measures will require affected financial institutions to disclose on a consolidated basis annual payments made to governments, including profit before tax, taxes on profits, and subsidies received.
