FMLC has written to the heads of the EU DG Internal Market and Services and DG Taxation and Customs Union to comment on the legal uncertainties arising from the proposals for a Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) Directive. In its letter to the latter, it raises issues around the types of transactions affected, the persons liable, enforcement and the application of the anti-avoidance provisions. The letter to the former includes comments on the impact of the FTT on pre-existing contracts which do not contain clauses suited to allocate the risks associated with the FTT.

"Lexology is a good barometer of a firm's expertise as the articles showcase a firm's understanding of the issues involved and how up to date their knowledge is. It's a good one stop solution where one is able to view the same law/cases from different perspectives; on the whole I would rate Lexology as a good service."
