In September 2011, the EU released a draft Directive for an EU FTT, with a planned start date of 1 January 2014. This represented the first attempt to introduce a common FTT regime across all EU countries.
Since then, various countries have sought to ‘front run’ the EU FTT developments by introducing their own, domestic FTTs.
