Members of the European Parliament approved new rules to tax digital companies according to a press release published by the official website. "Threshold of minimum taxable revenues within the EU lowered to \u20ac40 million."\r\n\r\nFrom now on, online platforms selling, or sharing digital content can be taxed. Companies like Netflix, Youtube, or HBO Europe will have to pay taxes for "content on a digital interface such as video, audio, games, or text using a digital interface."\r\n\r\nBlockchain technology companies will have to pay attention to the new set of rules as they may be subjected to pay taxes if they share content or information depending on the platform.\r\n\r\nNew rules, however, will be a temporary solution as MEPs underlined that the Digital Services Tax "is a temporary measure. Adopting the Significant Digital Presence, the Common Corporate Consolidated Tax Base or similar rules reached at the OECD or at UN level would be permanent solutions."\r\n\r\nAccording to the press release, "The report on the digital services tax directive was adopted with 451 votes in favour, 69 against and 64 abstentions."\r\n\r\nOn the other hand, "the report on the corporate taxation of a significant digital presence directive was adopted with 439 votes in favour, 58 against and 81 abstentions."
