Council of the European Union

Corporate taxation

The Council took a number of decisions on corporate taxation.
It adopted a directive on cross-border tax rulings, which will improve transparency on tax rulings given by member states to companies about how taxation will be dealt with.


The Council discussed interrelated measures aimed at preventing corporate tax evasion. It adopted conclusions on the future of a code of conduct on business taxation and on implementation of OECD work on tax base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS). It also reviewed progress on international anti-BEPS aspects of a proposal for an EU common consolidated corporate tax base.


Capital markets union

The Council endorsed an agreement reached at committee level on the development of a securitisation market in Europe, part of broader plans for a capital markets union.
