每日更新 - 英国退欧 /公司税/护照 The Daily Update - Brexit / Corporation Tax / Passporting

《星期日泰晤士报》昨天报道,英国正不认真考虑削减公司税低至10%;情况是,如果欧盟拒绝自由贸易协议,或阻止英国金融机构进入欧洲金融市场。目前英国公司税是20%,计划到2020年将逐步减少到17%。这一想法由首相泰雷莎·梅的密切顾问提出,此前英国对退欧态度似乎正在强硬化,尽管欧盟领导人表明英国不可能‘做出最佳选择’。

报纸说,一条接近于讨论的政府消息说,“人们说我们没有任何办法,但是,如果情形变得困难,我们有一些相当不错的措施。如果他们说没有护照和高贸易关税,我们可以减少公司税10%。”

当然这个想法不是新提出的。前首相乔治·奥斯本在英国退欧投票后立即提出了15%的公司税的想法。在他担任首相期间,税率从28%减少到20%,并为进一步削减开辟了道路。目前,欧盟的平均公司税是22%,而其两个最大的经济体,德国和法国的税率分别接近30%和31%以上。正如欧盟向苹果开出税单后广泛报道的那样,爱尔兰的税率最低,只有12.5%。

英国银行家协会的负责人安东尼·布朗(Anthony Browne)就英国退欧提出警告,说,银行正在“蠢蠢欲动搬迁”。布朗说,较小的银行计划在圣诞节前开始搬迁,而较大的银行则希望在明年第一季度开始搬迁。 “大多数国际银行现在都有项目团队制定他们需要采取哪些措施以确保他们可以继续为客户服务,确定必须发生的日期,以及如何做到这一点”他说。他继续说,声称英国可以签署“第三国对等性”以取代护照的人被欺骗了,补充道:“欧盟的等效制度是护照的一个阴影 - 它只覆盖狭窄的服务范围,可以在实际上没有任何通知的情况下撤回,并且可能意味着英国将必须接受其无法决定的规则。对于大多数银行来说,等价性不会阻止他们重新定位业务。
