Landmark Decisions of the ECJ in Direct Taxation
International Tax Conferences of the University of Luxembourg Series Volume 4
Every professional dealing with taxation in the European Union will greatly appreciate this extraordinarily useful book. Based on a high-level conference held at the University of Luxembourg in 2014, the book presents detailed expert summaries and analyses of landmark ECJ decisions in direct taxation, each case a starting point for the development of a specific doctrine. The depth of the analysis, as each author charts a way through the nuances of the Court’s arguments, allows the reader to gain an unparalleled understanding of changes in the relevant subsequent jurisprudence. The fundamental issues covered are the following:
- taxation of non-residents in the EU context;
- implications of EU fundamental freedoms in the income tax systems of the Member States;
- outbound and inbound dividend taxation;
- taxation of permanent establishments;
- restrictions on freedom of establishment;
- tax treatment of corporate exit;
- abuse of taxpayers’ rights;
- cohesion of the tax system as an overriding factor in the public interest;
- juridical double taxation arising from the exercise of overlapping powers of two or more States;
- free movement of capital and third countries; and
- tax treatment of non-profit organizations in the cross-border context.
