This year has been nothing short of a tax-rollercoaster ride! We cautiously climbed onboard 2022 with anticipation, the scene having been set by an accelerated 2021. With a nod at the French operator, expecting and fearing the thrill, we started climbing, bracing ourselves in discussions on a corporate minimum tax. A sharp drop, the wind taken out of us as we unravelled the proposed UNShell Directive, we free-wheeled into the inverted loops of the Code of Conduct Group (Business Taxation) reform, finding ourselves buoying amid increasing pressure among peers. Trudging up steep inclines through ad hoc ideas on how to feed EU own resources through taxation, reaching dizzying heights on market attributions, only to fall through calls for tax advisor regulation, WHT reforms and ghosts of proposals past. Yearning for the finishing line, past the DEBRA proposal and blacklist updates, we feel frantic, suspended, drained… yet exhilarated.
