Tax reform is inevitable after pandemic, says Spain's PM Sanchez

Government would aim to raise taxes on larger companies rather than smaller ones

  

MADRID - Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Thursday that tax reform was inevitable in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, as the country collects proportionally less fiscal revenue than the European Union average.

Speaking in an interview with the La Sexta television channel, Sanchez also said his government would aim to raise taxes on larger companies rather than smaller ones.
