    New study: Auditing requirements and the effect on the tax gap

    Since 2006, shifting Danish governments have increased the thresholds for mandatory auditing for small firms to minimize the administrative burden.

    In this study, we find that easing auditing requirements significantly increases the so-called tax gap (the difference between taxes paid and taxes owned).

    New study: A fresh perspective the EU principles of subsidiarity and proportionality to ensure inclusive growth

    Copenhagen Economics has together with the think-tank Bertelsmann Stiftung authored a study on the EU principle of subsidiarity and economic growth. The study is input to the initiative of the Austrian EU presidency of increased focus on subsidiarity. We find that to ensure inclusive growth and to deal with future challenges, the EU needs a renewed focus on the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality. For example, in financial market regulation and the common Agriculture policy, some regulation could be better fitted for local regions. On the other hand, when creating world class digital infrastructure most value is added when acting on an EU-level.
