Following the European Commission's proposal of October 2016 to relaunch the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB), this ZEW Lunch Debate will focus on the design and implications of the new rules. Is the CCCTB an efficient tool for making corporate taxation in the EU fairer, more competitive and more growth-friendly? What are the benefits of a Common Corporate Tax Base (CCTB) as a first-stage solution? How might we expect enterprises to react towards the second-stage formula apportionment? And finally, what will the longer-term effects of a CCCTB be on growth, jobs and investment in the EU?
