Spain, France, Italy, the UK, Austria and Turkey will remove the Google tax and transfer tax policy to the new US and OECD-Led project

Up to six European countries have already announced that they will abandon the Digital Services Tax (DST) (known as the Google tax) after its failure to raise revenue. They have expressed their intention to eliminate this tax and transfer their tax policy to the new international project, led by the US, on which the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is already working. These countries will wait for the OECD’s new tax rules to be approved before eliminating their Google taxes.
