Consultation on the Re-launch of the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB)
on 17 June 2016
The Commission expects to gather views in particular on the following:
- To what extent the CCCTB could function as an effective tool against aggressive tax planning, without compromising its initial objective of making the Single Market a more business-friendly environment.
- Which criteria should determine the companies that will be subject to the rules of a mandatory CCTB/CCCTB.
- Whether non-qualifying companies should still be given the possibility to opt for applying the common rules.
- Whether a 'staged' approach, whereby priority will be given to agreeing the tax base before moving to consolidation, would be a preferable way forward.
- Whether, in the short-term, it would be useful to agree common rules for implementing certain international BEPS-related aspects of the common tax base based on the current proposal until the Commission adopts the new (revised) CCTB/CCCTB proposal.
- How the debt bias issue should be addressed.
- Which types of rules would best foster R&D activity.
- Whether a cross-border loss relief mechanism aimed to balance out the absence of the benefits of consolidation during the first step (CCTB) could help in keeping the business in the CCCTB.
