European Union tax law

EU law is assuming an increasingly significant role in the direct tax field. The growing number of EU-inspired tax laws on one hand and the effects of EU case law on the application of domestic rules on the other hand force businesses to take stock of how they assess the opportunities and risks arising from EU law.

The EU law team, which works within the PwC pan-European EUDTG (EU Direct Tax Group) and SAWG (State Aid Working Group) teams, is specialised in all areas involved with direct taxes: fundamental freedoms, EU Directives and state aid, and can help businesses to make prior assessments of the opportunities or risks arising from failure to apply EU law in Member States’ domestic law and in the subsequent phases of the exploitation of opportunities or the management of risk.

We have solid experience in dealing with domestic and European tax authorities and Courts for cases regarding the application of EU law.
