Event Agenda


In the third session of our Task Force, we will look at how Europe’s underlying regulations need to be adapted to allow the continental-wide rollout of Collaborative Economy services.

Major gaps persist. Who should be responsible for collecting and paying tax? Accommodation and ride-sharing platforms voluntarily collect tax on behalf of their participants. Should this role be made mandatory? Is forcing the platforms effective in fighting fraud and filling government coffers?

Many services struggle to work with the Collaborative Economy players, who often fall between amateur and professional. A good example is insurance. How can your home be insured when it is rented for short-term accommodation? How can you ensure your private car when you give rides on a platform to earn extra money? How can a part-time delivery person protect their bike when it is used for both commercial activity and personal mobility?

Although cross-border collaborative platforms should increase the opportunity for service providers to supply services outside of their home country, current rules are organised along national or even local boundaries, and are often contradictory. How can they be harmonised while respecting local prerogatives and needs?

In this meeting, we will hear from insurance and tax experts along with regional representatives.
