The finansskat, such as France and Germany want, will go out over the small savers, and the government will not have.
A tax on financial transactions in the EU countries will bushel well in the common box. It is one of the arguments put forward by France and Germany trying to lure the other EU countries in an attempt to revive the idea.
But it will not be with the support from Denmark. It establishes the minister of finance, who refers to the project as a nightmare.
– It has for some been a dream for many a nightmare over several years, says Kristian Jensen.
The government will not have a finansskat, as France and Germany, presents on Monday at a meeting between EU finance ministers.
– We are opponents of it. We can not see what gain it would be. On the contrary, it will be to the detriment of the free movement of capital. It will damage them, which saves up, says Kristian Jensen.
the Plan has been discussed for years in various guises.
The most recent submission of the proposal must be viewed in light of a broader proposal from France and Germany. The two core in the union want a budget for the euro zone.
A finansskat to contribute to filling the budget with funds, and thus gather support for the project.
– It is never managed to create a consensus on it, and I consider it is also not possible to create an agreement now. A finansskat will hit pension savers, says Jensen.
France has already introduced a tax on financial transactions. One of the concerns has been that it will move the such trades to other countries, where the treasure does not exist. It was also the concern for France.
Why have some countries have said that they can only support a tax if it is global.
the EUROPEAN Commission has carried out an economic analysis of skattens importation in France, and the conclusion is that it has not had the negative effects, as you feared.
The analysis provides the minister of finance not much. He sees no benefits in a finansskat.
– It is no surprise that the commission, like their own tax. What we can see, each time we’ve analyzed it from the Danish side, is that it’s going to go out of small savers and people who are saving for their own retirement. It quite simply we want not, says Kristian Jensen.
There is a need for “the EU gives priority to the budget”. It should not grow, stresses the minister.
