ZEW Lunch Debate in Brussels - "MaTax Policy Meeting" Special Edition Addresses Corporate Tax Avoidance

Aggressive tax planning and tax avoidance by multinationals are a blessing for companies - and a curse for national tax authorities and tax payers. How can large international companies be taxed adequately in Europe? What lessons can we learn from scandals such as "LuxLeaks", and what is the actual loss for public coffers if companies avoid taxes by choosing low-tax locations? These questions were discussed at the "MaTax Policy Meeting" special edition of the ZEW Lunch Debates at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union in Brussels on June 16, 2015. In her talk, Professor Katharina Finke, deputy head of the Research Department "Corporate Taxation and Public Finance" at the Centre for European Economic Research and assistant professor of accounting and taxation at the University of Mannheim, made clear that multinationals are extremely mobile due to their organisational structures. She also argued that tax regimes in the EU, which vary from Member State to Member State, further encourage aggressive tax planning. read more
