Abstract

Empirical research reveals that relocations of corporate centres are most times confined to national borders. Until now, cross-border relocations are almost absent in the European Union, while in the United States relocations across State borders appear to be common. To contribute to a managerial understanding of these phenomena, we propose a conceptual framework of the determinants of the corporate centre location. Based on our analysis, we predict the stickiness of corporate centres of European Union-based corporations will diminish due to the European Union integration process and in particular triggered by the expected EU legislation regarding the removal of legal barriers against corporate mobility.
