CEPS Task Force

Harmonisation of Corporate Tax Bases


CEPS Task Force Report:
Achieving a Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base in the EU
Malcolm Gammie, Silvia Giannini, Alexander Klemm, Andreas Oestreicher, Paola Parascandolo & Christoph Spengel

This report analyses to what extent the objectives of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are compatible with basic tax principles and could form the starting point for achieving a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) in Europe. It also provides constructive information and guidance to the European Commission to identify the elements of member states’ tax systems that must be considered to achieve convergence to a CCCTB from the starting point of IFRS.
