Corporate taxation and transparency currently feature big on the European policy agenda, and are unlikely to lose ground any time soon. A combination of heightened media attention, Luxleaks or Panama Papers, budgetary constraints in many countries and increased awareness by the public have created unprecedented momentum for a more coordinated EU corporate tax policy.

The changes to tax and transparency rules that already have been and will be discussed have the potential to substantively impact how businesses pay and report taxes, how the companies are structured and not only how they do tax planning, but how they do business as such in Europe. The current intense debate also inhibits higher potential for reputational exposure.
