The meeting of the EU Council for Economic and Financial Affairs (Ecofin Council) held on 2 December 2008, discussed a number of topics related to tax issues. Once again, the VAT reduced rates were tabled, but no relevant further steps have yet been taken. Another topic was related to the discussion of the new proposal of the amending Directive to the Savings Directive of 13 November 2008, presented by the EU Commission. Further topics included the adoption of the new work programme of the Code of Conduct Group for the next 18 months, and the approval to new and upcoming progress to be made in what relates to a proposal for amending the VAT Directive pertaining to insurance and other financial services. Finally, a Resolution aiming at providing for common rules to avoid double taxation disadvantages that may arise from the transfer of economic activities was approved
