On 29 June 2011, the Commission adopted a proposal for the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework for the period 2014-2020: a budget for delivering the Europe 2020 strategy proposing among others a new Fiscalis 2020 programme. This programme will contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, by strengthening the functioning of the tax systems within the Member States and the Union's Single Market. By facilitating the evolution of national tax administrations towards e-tax administrations, the new programme also contributes to the establishment of a Digital Single Market.
The proposed programme will support the cooperation mainly between the tax authorities and, if appropriate, other parties concerned. It is the successor programme of the Fiscalis 2013 programme which ends on 31 December 2013. The Fiscalis 2020 programme will support tax cooperation in the Union clustered around human networking and competency building, on the one hand, and IT capacity building on the other hand. The first cluster allows for the exchange of good practices and operational knowledge amongst the Member States and other countries participating in the programme. The latter enables the programme to fund appropriate IT infrastructure and systems that allow tax administrations in the Union to evolve to fully-fledged e-administrations. The main added-value of the programme is generated by enhancing the capacity of Member States in fighting fraud and possibly raising revenue, while cutting costs in developing the tools for these purposes.
