Ecommerce Europe is hosting a Roundtable on the Taxation of the Digital Economy in September


On 19 September,  European  legislators, e-commerce players, their representatives and the wider stakeholders  will gather for  an  exchange of views on the solutions put on the table by the  European  Commission  regarding  the taxation of the digital economy. The issue of fair taxation of the digital economy is high on the agenda of the European Union. While some Member States favor the interim Proposal for a Digital Services Tax, presented by the European Commission in March 2018, others see it as a threat to European businesses and competitiveness and thus favor a global solution at OECD level.  

This Roundtable, organized by the European e-commerce association,  will offer its participants  an opportunity  to  discuss  ideas on  how to make sure that the taxation of the digital economy will be fair for all actors involved.  

Please note that this  event is by invitation only. However, if after the registration period some seats remain available, other interested participants may be able to join. Those who might be interested in attending can express their interest by sending an email to
