Programme Details

Fiscalis 2020 is an EU cooperation programme. It enables national tax administrations to create and exchange information and expertise. It allows developing and operating major trans-European IT systems together, as well as establishing networks by bringing together national officials from across Europe. Fiscalis 2020 supports cooperation between tax authorities in the EU to help maximise their efficiency and avoid mismatches in their work, which could hinder the functioning of the Internal Market. It will facilitate networking, joint actions and training amongst tax personnel, while also funding IT systems to support the exchange of information between tax administrations.

• to implement, improve, operate and support the European Information Systems for taxation;

• to support administrative cooperation activities;
