About the Authors
  • How does EU law affect Member State corporate tax systems and the cross-border activities of companies? This unique study traces the historical development of EU corporate tax law and provides an in-depth analysis of a number of issues affecting companies, groups of companies and permanent establishments. Existing legislation, soft-law and the case-law of the Court of Justice are examined. The proposed CCCTB Directive and its potential application through enhanced co-operation are also considered. In addition to the tax issues pertaining to direct investment, the author examines the taxation of passive investment income, corporate reorganisations, exit taxes and the restrictive effect of domestic anti-abuse regimes. By doing so, the convergences and divergences arising from the interplay of EU corporate tax law and international tax law, especially the OECD model, are uncovered and highlighted.

    • Assessment of the impact of EU law on companies, groups of companies and corporate investors will assist students, lawyers, government officials and academics to understand the current situation
    • Examines the interaction between EU corporate tax law and both international tax law and the OECD model, making this useful for readers from non-EU countries and those working in international tax law
    • Analyses recent cases and legislative proposals and offers a thought-provoking discussion of the current problems faced by companies in their cross-border activities

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Against this background the book by Christiana HJI Panayi could hardly have been more timely. It is a comprehensive analysis of EU corporate tax law, demonstrating great knowledge and insight. It represents a great addition to existing literature and - this reviewer has no doubt - will soon become a reference in this area.' Rita de la Feria, British Tax Review
