The tax would be imposed on companies with digital sales of at least 750 million euros (810 million U.S. dollars) internationally and at least three million euros in Spain.
Montero said that the affected companies would have to make their first payments in December 2020 in order to allow time for international negotiations, adding that the decision had been taken as part of a move towards a "fairer and more redistributive fiscal system, which adapts to the new economic reality."
The bill still requires parliament's approval. ■
