- Working groups
The Tax Working Group (WG) formulates ETNO's responses to EU and OECD proposed fiscal legislation on telecommunications services and on m- and e-commerce. The ETNO Tax Working Group strives to ensure that future tax rules on communication services provide a viable basis for the development of the telecom sector, without distorting competition and avoiding undue compliance burdens.
This WG cooperates closely with GSMA Europe and together, the associations have been appointed as members of the VAT Expert Group (VEG), an advisory committee set up by the European Commission, DG TAXUD.
ETNO WGs are the engine of the Association. The bottom-up approach when formulating ETNO position papers ensures that all ETNO member interests are captured. The Tax WG Chairman is Costanzo Perona, Telecom Italia: firstname.lastname@example.org.
