Description - EU Taxation Law by Laurence W. Gormley
The essential purpose of the tax provisions of the EC Treaty is to contribute to the establishment of a common market that will ensure free trade in goods. The basic principle in this regard is one of non-discrimination between imported and similar or competing domestic goods. This book provides a practical overview of the law in this area and its interpretation and application by the European courts. EU Taxation Law includes detailed analysis of the harmonisation of indirect taxes in the EU, covering principally the substantial body of legislation and case law in the area of value added tax and excise duties, but also discussing company taxation and taxation of savings and royalties. It derives from a section in the looseleaf Law of the EU (Vaughan & Robertson, eds), and is made available here for the benefit of those who don't subscribe to the looseleaf.
