2. Head Office Tax system (HOT) – simplifying cross-border taxation for SMEs
The purpose of this proposal is to reduce the tax-related administrative burden SMEs encounter when they open a fixed place of business in another Member State.

3. Harmonising EU transfer pricing – EC proposal to reduce tax compliance costs
This proposal aims to harmonise EU transfer pricing rules and tax treatment of intra-group transactions for SMEs.

This factsheet aims to support accountants and provides an overview of the CBAM’s main provisions.
