Offshore Funds

The Offshore Funds Blog is dedicated to demystifying offshore investment funds: why investment managers use them and how they work. We also write about the latest offshore funds news from the BVI, Cayman, Cyprus and Luxembourg. It's written by lawyers, but we try to keep it interesting anyway.

Who’s in charge of Tax Policy in Europe?

Direct taxation, including corporate tax and the levels charged by an EU member state, looks like it should be dealt with by each state, co-ordinating with others to the extent agreed in any further anti tax avoidance directive, rather than at a centralised EU level. The Apple decision seems to throw that into doubt though.
