What does Volt stand for? / Economy & Fiscal Justice

Fiscal justice

Every year, the government loses billions of euros in revenue due to fraudulent tax activities. For fiscal fraud alone, this is estimated to cost more than 30 billion euro annually.

  • Increase efforts to fight corruption, tax fraud, tax evasion and social fraud

  • A variable corporate taxation of 15-35% (current rate: 20-25%), depending on performance factors like employment, climate neutrality and human health (ESG)

  • Reduced tax burden for single individuals, for instance by eliminating the marriage coefficient

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.
