The European Commission’s anti-tax avoidance package

King & Wood Mallesons London Head of Tax, Heather Corben, was featured in the Tax Journal, covering the European Commission’s anti-tax avoidance package - published in January 2016 as a follow up to its June 2015 Action Plan.

Some member states are likely to be concerned about these proposals, which will require changes to national laws.
