National and international corporate tax law

France

The implementation of BEPS measures to tackle base erosion and profit shifting, the proliferation of tax regulations, rulings handed down by the European Court of Justice and domestic supreme courts, such as the French Conseil d’État, the introduction of new transparency rules: at a time when use of tax revenue is a critical issue for any country, reform is on the increase and tax systems in France and abroad are proving more complex than ever.
