EU Special Committee on Tax Rulings Publishes Country Responses to Information Request — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

On 26 June 2015, the European Parliament’s Special Committee on Tax Rulings and Other Measures Similar in Nature or Effect (TAXE Committee) published the responses of jurisdictions to the Committee's request for information tax ruling practices made in April 2015. The TAXE Committee was formed earlier in the year to investigate the tax rulings of EU Member States that are seen as unfair, especially those given for large multinationals.

A few response letters were quite extensive, including over 200 pages from Guernsey, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, while most others were 10 pages or less. Click the following links for the responses published from each country:

The TAXE Committee will hold a meeting on 2 July 2015 with Commission President Jean-Claude Junker and Tax Commissioner Pierre Moscovici to discuss the country responses and other tax ruling issues.
