As part of their Action Plan for Fair and Efficient Corporate Taxation, the EU Commission has launched a public consultation seeking views on how dispute resolution for double taxation issues can be facilitated, as an alternative to the current mechanisms provided for in the bilateral tax treaties entered into by Member States. The Consultation will close on 10 May 2016 and the Commission is seeking views on: (i) the significance of the removal of double taxation for cross-border enterprises; (ii) the impact and effectiveness of dispute resolution mechanisms on EU businesses; and (iii) how these mechanisms can be improved and comments on possible solutions.
