    New study: The proposed EU Digital Service Tax is targeted at the digital infrastructure that German SMEs rely on to promote growth and innovation

    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.

    The Commission’s proposal stipulates that only firms with more than €750 million in global revenue, and more than €50 million in EU digital revenue should face the DST, leaving the impression that only global MNEs would be affected. However, in this study we find that:

    • The tax burden of the DST - related to services provided to the German market - will at least partly, if not fully, be passed through to German businesses and consumers.
    • The DST is a distorting tax on the digital infrastructure that German businesses (most notably SMEs) rely upon to reach more customers at lower costs.
    • The DST will impact a growing and important part of the German economy.

    New study: Future housing market and urban development in the Capital Region of Denmark

    To accommodate rising demand, the housing supply still needs to increase quite a lot in Copenhagen and surrounding suburbs in the years to come – more than what is currently in the local municipal plans.

    The municipalities in the region face significant regulatory barriers to increasing the future housing supply – especially municipal budget constraints on new required investments, as well as regulation on how and where to densify and develop new and existing urban areas. Better regional infrastructure could help by increasing the demand spill-overs from the city and outwards, while the municipal budget constraints could be eased through public-private-partnerships or public development companies.

    On October 1, Senior Economist Christian Heebøll presented these and other results at a housing market summit, facilitating a discussion between the Danish Minister of Transport, Building, and Housing and the Mayors of all the 28 municipalities in the Capital Region of Denmark.
