EU Law and the Building of Global Supranational Tax Law: EU BEPS and State Aid

This book examines the way in which EU law and international law influence each other through a two-way flow of concepts and categories.

Why this book?

The papers in this book are the result of the 10th Annual Conference of the Group for Research on European and International Taxation (GREIT), which was held on 17 and 18 September 2015 in Amsterdam. The theme of this conference was the influence of European law on international tax law and, vice versa, the influence of international tax law on European law. European law and international tax law are increasingly offering building blocks for what can be called a “global supranational tax law”.

Subjects discussed in this book are:

  • Interactive law building and EU tax law
  • The formation of customary law in the field of taxation
  • Tax sovereignty in an era of tax multilateralism
  • Tax incentives, global tax fairness and the development of tax law in developed and developing countries
  • The interaction between IP box regimes and compensatory tax measures
  • Enhanced transparency and its impact on relations between tax authorities and taxpayers
  • The EU Code of Conduct
  • State aid recovery and investor protection for non-EU taxpayers
  • APAs and State aid
  • The general anti-abuse clause in the EU Parent-Subsidiary Directive
  • The European Union and BEPS: Conflicting concepts of tax avoidance
  • The European Commission’s anti-tax avoidance package

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in learning about how EU law and international law influence each other through a two-way flow of concepts and categories.
