As part of the different initiatives stemming from the Base Erosion
Profit Shifting (BEPS) actions, the Anti-Tax Directive (ATAD), adopted
in 2016, features a series of rules aimed at tackling tax avoidance
practices within the EU.
This new directive, which includes measures going beyond the BEPS
recommendations, emphasizes the need to align taxing rights with value
creation. By January 2019, at the latest, Member States have to
implement ATAD and adopt specific provisions that best fit their
national corporate tax systems. The Directive features the adoption of
coordinated measures (minimum standards) among the 28 corporate tax
regimes in order to ensure a coherent fight against tax avoidance
practices within the internal market.
This minimum level of protection encompasses various measures to
combat avoidance schemes such as the adoption of an interest
limitation rule, an exit taxation, a general anti-abuse mechanism,
rules on controlled foreign companies, and provisions regarding hybrid
mismatches. In addition to triggering issues of interpretations, these
tax avoidance rules raise additional concerns regarding their
interaction and compatibility with domestic constitutional safeguards,
existing national tax provisions on equivalent matters, and double tax
Building upon the practical discussions on the implementation of ATAD
for Luxembourg, which took place in October 2018 at the University of
Luxembourg, the ATOZ Chair for European and International Taxation
invites renowned tax experts to further address the tax avoidance
measures. Five panels will discuss each ATAD provision and the wider
implications within the applicable legal framework.
