The proposal on the next Multiannual Financial Framework period offers the opportunity to modernise the EU's financial framework. As indicated in the Communication 'A Modern Budget for a Union that Protects, Empowers and Defends: The Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027' the Union is facing the need to fund new Union priorities and European public goods. At the same time, economic changes and globalisation are posing new challenges for national tax systems, and there are new policies which can be strengthened by providing financial incentives for them at EU level. Moreover, many have called for a reform of the revenue side of the budget in order to increase its clarity, fairness and transparency.
