The Anti-Tax Avoidance Directives I and II (ATAD) have resulted in some harmonization of tax avoidance measures across the 27 EU member states and the UK. However, significant differences remain among the various countries due to the many optional provisions provided for in ATAD. Furthermore, at a detailed level, specific measures and situations are treated differently across the various EU jurisdictions.

To help you keep control of all these differences in the EU jurisdictions where you (plan to) do business, Baker McKenzie’s tax teams across Europe have developed the ATAD Implementation Tool. This tool allows the tracking of the differences in the various EU countries. With one tool you are now able to have an easy comparison across the EU jurisdictions and the UK (a few countries will be added shortly) and detailed insights into specific practical issues.
