Germany can’t wait for Europe on tax avoidance crackdown

BERLIN, Oct 11 (Reuters) – A new German government should
crack down on tax avoidance by multinational firms without
waiting for its European partners to act, an influential member
of the Social Democrats said ahead of a new round of exploratory
coalition talks with Angela Merkel.

Norbert Walter-Borjans, finance minister for the big state
of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), told Reuters he expected the
fight against tax evasion and profit-shifting by companies to be
a major topic of discussion if the SPD enters more formal
negotiations with Merkel’s conservatives.
