As part of its six-month Presidency of the EU, Ireland and the Commission have, in a joint-letter dated 24 April 2013, identified seven key areas where action should be taken by the EU in that period. These action items include, amongst other things, agreement on the revised savings tax directive proposal, reaching agreement on a new Anti-VAT Fraud proposal and prioritising agreement of guidance on intra-EU hybrid entity mismatches. The Presidency and the Commission, in a letter dated 24 April, requested that all Member States agree to the seven key actions “without delay”, with the hope that they will be adopted by all Member States before the end of June. These actions were due to be discussed at the ECOFIN meeting of 14 May.
