Cube description:
This table shows the revenue of environmentally related taxes allocated by economic player. The statistical tools used are the Environmental taxes, developed by Eurostat.
Environmentally related taxes are compulsory payments to the government without individual counterpart whereby the tax base is a physical unit (or a proxy of a physical unit) of something, that has a proven, specific negative impact on the environment. In terms of national and international comparability, only taxes considered as such by the national accounts are taken into consideration, and no other types of environmental tax levies, such as usage fees paid in exchange for an individual service from the government (e. g. municipal usage fees for management of wastewater and waste). Due to a change in classification in the 2020 revision of the national accounts, the heavy vehicle charge and the motorway charge sticker are no longer accounted for as taxes but as charges. Environmental tax revenues are calculated net of VAT, but include the administrative costs linked to collection. Any potential tax refunds, cuts or exemptions from which some businesses benefit are taken into account. Internationally, environmentally related taxes can be split into four categories: tax on energy, transport, emissions and resources (the latter category does not exist in Switzerland).
Sometimes, estimations had been carried out where information for the allocation in economic activities were not available.
