The enlargement of the European Union in 2004 and 2007 by a number of countries with comparatively low corporate tax rates - seen by some as representing an unfair competitive advantage - has refuelled the debate on corporate taxation in Europe. The present Forum highlights a number of pertinent issues and discusses the challenges implied for European corporate tax policy. © Springer-Verlag BerlinHeidelberg 2007.
