On 1 July 2021 more than 130 countries agreed on common rules for a global minimum tax of „at least 15%“. To implement the minimum tax in the EU, the European Commission already announced its plan to propose a directive based on the unanimity principle. This strategy could prove to be dangerous, as four EU countries didn’t sign the international agreement. The need to get them on board gives them the opportunity to water down the effectiveness of the minimum tax, e.g. via an extended substance-based carve out that would decrease revenues and open new channels of tax competition. For a successful implementation it is therefore necessary to explore alternatives to unanimity.
