Economy & Fiscal Justice

Euro logo in Frankfurt
Our vision is to create a society in which everyone in need benefits from tax relief to make their daily expenses, such as groceries and outings, easier to bear. We aim to eliminate paternalistic practices, such as car subsidies and company cars. Furthermore, we strive for an economy that grows sustainably, benefiting people, health, the planet, and nature.

Volt believes that a fair and sustainable tax system is crucial for addressing citizens' concerns, reducing inequality, and promoting economic stability. By balancing taxes, combating fraud, treating single individuals equally, and aligning corporate taxes with societal, environmental, and governance contributions, Belgium can create a more prosperous and just society.

The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
