Treasury Secretary Scholz sees US exit from digital tax calm

Federal Minister of Finance Olaf Scholz (SPD) says the USA's exit from the negotiations on the introduction of a digital tax is calm.

"In international negotiations: do not be afraid," said Scholz the "Redaction network Germany" (Tuesday editions). "Even with digital tax, we will not let up in our international efforts and will strive for a joint solution this year," the SPD politician continued.

"New trade disputes are definitely the last thing the global economy needs in this tense situation." According to Scholz, the negotiations at OECD level on global minimum taxation of companies are more promising. “We have come a long way in terms of minimum taxation. Such an agreement would be a big step forward because companies will no longer only pay their taxes where they are lowest ?? because that harms almost all states, ”said the finance minister. “The corona crisis in particular shows the advantages of a solidly financed community. The minimum tax is very important. ”
