    New study: Main Developments in the Postal Sector 2013-2016

    The European postal and delivery market produced more than €90 billion in 2016 and it will continue to grow. However, two opposing dynamics in the letter and parcel delivery markets underpin fundamental challenges for all market stakeholders. These are some of the themes analysed in detail in our recent study prepared for the European Commission, which reviews the postal sector EU-wide over the last five years.

    On September 19th, Henrik Ballebye Okholm and Mindaugas Cerpickis presented the results of the Study at Delivering for the future II: Workshop on developments in the postal sector in Brussels.

    New study: The proposed EU digital tax risks solving no problems while creating new ones

    In March 2018, the European Commission proposed a Digital Services Tax (DST) as a new tax on revenues resulting from certain digital business activities. Specifically, a 3% tax on: (i) Online advertising revenues, (ii) Seller/buyer fees to transact via online intermediaries/marketplaces and (iii) Revenues from the sale of user data. We have reviewed the evidence base and analytical logic of the proposal. We find that:

    • The rationale for introducing DST does not reflect the evidence that digital firms pay average corporate tax rates
    • The Impact Assessment (IA) for the DST does not fully consider the substantial distortions and costs to EU consumers and firms from this new tax
    • Actual revenues from the proposal are likely to be significantly lower than suggested

    Today, Sigurd Næss-Schmidt presents the results at a CEPS event in Brussels. Read more about the event

    Competition Appeals Tribunal remits case about industry standards for roofing felt

    On 13 September 2018, the Danish Competition Appeals Tribunal remitted a case about industry standards for roofing felt for review and renewed decision.

    In May 2017, the Danish Competition Council found that two roofing felt producers and the industry associations Danske Tagpapfabrikanters Brancheforening and Tagpapbranchens Oplysningsråd (TOR) illegally kept rivals out of the market with the help of TOR industry standards.  

    However, the Competition Appeals Tribunal found that the Competition Council failed to sufficiently demonstrate a by-object infringement, due to an insufficient analysis of the economic and legal context. In its decision, the Tribunal states that it has not been sufficiently demonstrated that the guiding consideration of the standards has been to keep competitors from the market or to limit the supply of products, or that the standards in themselves have been suitable for having (let alone have had) such an effect.

    Copenhagen Economics submitted a report on the effects of industry standards in general and the TOR industry standards in particular.
