Description This paper deals with the financial transaction tax in the European Union. While it is currently a matter of enhanced cooperation between several Member States regulated only at the national level, it is considered to be a potentially good source of the EU’s own resources. The negotiations about its implementation on the EU recently begun again as there is need to search for funds for the economic recovery after the coronavirus pandemic. The author works with the hypothesis that if the taxation of financial transactions and the financial sector as such is beneficial, harmonization within the free market of the European Union is necessary. From scientific methods, it will mainly use the analysis of proposals for a new system of taxation of financial transactions to confirm or refute it. In order to be able to put the issue into a suitable context, the method of interpretation will also be used, especially in the first chapter dealing with the issue of sectoral taxation. With regard to the problematic nature of the examined type of tax, a comparison will be made in several parts - while examining the current state and possible developments in the future. The professional literature does not yet deal with this topic, so it will be used rather in support of other sources, such as legislative documents of national and community institutions, and press releases. In addition to processing the above hypothesis by the proposed methods, the aim of this work is also to provide an overview of the current state of affairs both at the level of the European Union and within the Czech Republic. Sectoral taxation is by its nature a political issue, so there is room for controversy about its suitability, effectiveness, and impact on society.
