V4: Heaven or Hell for Sharing Economy?

Kryštof Kruliš Kryštof Kruliš / Ed. 15. 6. 2016

“Nowadays, it is hard to move forward on a trajectory of economic convergence only by following growth recipes of the 20th century. Sharing economy could be such a wave on which the Visegrad Group countries accelerate their catching up with economic performance of their western neighbours. Being prepared to surf on this wave better than others should be a new credo for the V4 countries,” Kryštof Kruliš argues in his policy paper.

In early June, the European Commission issued guidelines on how to regulate the functioning of sharing economy platforms on the EU internal market. Is it possible to create a single horizontal definition of the phenomenon? In what aspects is the regulatory approach of the V4 countries different from the other EU member states? And what are the tax risks associated with the diffusion of such platforms?

The policy paper draws on the conclusions of the conference “Sharing Economy: The View from the Visegrad Group”, which was kindly supported by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and the International Visegrad Fund within the project “Smooth Functioning of the Internal Market between V4 Countries”.
