A new Luxembourg bill will incorporate the EU Anti-Tax Avoidance directive into law.
These new rules will mainly target multinational corporate groups engaged in cross-border transactions. They include provisions related to interest limitation, exit taxation, a general anti-abuse rule, controlled foreign companies, and intra-EU hybrid mismatches. While some of the bill's measures will only slightly modify the country's existing domestic tax framework, others will bring more significant changes. Notably, the bill contains two additional measures: one modifying Luxembourg's rules on tax neutrality, applicable to the conversion of debts, and another that alters the country's domestic permanent establishment (PE) definition.
