The European Commission on 16 February 2016 launched a public consultation to help identify ways to facilitate dispute resolution for businesses experiencing problems with double taxation in the EU.
This issue has also been raised by the OECD as part of its base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project—specifically, Action 14 on making dispute resolution mechanisms more effective. Accordingly, it remains to be seen whether, and if so how, the EC will build on the work done in this area by the OECD.
