The European Business Initiative on Taxation (EBIT)

EBIT is one of the most recognised business representative bodies on direct tax in Europe


Established in 2001 with the help of PwC at the request of a number of companies, EBIT is a high-level but informal cross-industry working group of Senior Tax Executives from European based companies whose aim is to help streamline and modernise Europe’s direct tax policy. EBIT aims to help eliminate remaining tax barriers that hamper cross-border economic activity in the single market, and deliver business messages based on real-life experiences and examples to achieve practical progress.
