Dear Budget,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I would like to request a list of all lobby meetings (including phone calls, conference calls etc) since 1 January 2019 where the EU’s Digital Services Tax proposal, or the OECD’s negotiations on a similar tax, were discussed. The list should include the names of the individuals and organisations participating; the date; the agenda; and any minutes / notes produced. I would additionally like to receive any emails or other correspondence related to proposals for a Digital Services Tax received or sent since 1 January 2019.

Please provide all responses electronically via this site.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
CEO

Dear Ms Cann,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 02 July 2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 03
July 2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/4027.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 27
July 2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU website is
responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via
that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address). 

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.  If you do not wish that your correspondence
with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as
AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail
address for further correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will
send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that
private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to
your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private
third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with,
and receive a reply from, the Commission.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Cann,

We refer to your request of 02 July 2020 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 03 July 2020 under the above mentioned
reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 27 July 2020.

An extended time limit is needed as other Commission services must be
consulted.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 17 August 2020.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours sincerely,

 

DG Budget Access to Documents team
