A Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base for Multinational Companies in the European Union, Some Issues und Options
AbstractThe European Commission proposed to provide multinational companies with a Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB) for their EU wide activities. The main goal of this proposal is the removal of existing tax obstacles to cross-border economic activity which are mainly caused by the coexistence of 27 national tax systems. This paper reviews the European Commission’s proposals and the underlying rationale. It addresses some of the key issues that arise when considering the design of the CCCTB. Among the issues under investigation are the definition of the consolidated group, the scope and technique of consolidation, the territorial scope of the consolidated tax base, the treatment of companies joining and leaving the CCCTB, and related issues.
