This new edition of EC Tax Law provides a detailed and extensive survey of EC tax legislation and case law. With the generalist lawyer in mind, the volume contains an introduction to VAT and to the basic principles of company taxation. It deals at some length with the legislation and case lawon VAT (which is almost completely harmonized at the EC level) and excise duties. In relation to indirect taxation it analyses the case law on Article 90 of the EC Treaty which prohibits fiscal discrimination against goods from other Member States. In the area of direct taxation it covers theexisting legislation on company taxation, and also the recent case law of the EC Court applying the treaty articles on the free movement of persons, services, and capital. The volume provides a detailed analysis of the legislation and its interpretation by the European Court, and also an analysis ofthe impact of the State aid rules in the tax field and the growing concern over what is often called unfair tax competition.
Paul Farmer is at Pump Court Tax Chambers. Richard Lyal is a Legal Adviser to the Commission of the European Communities

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition ...its approach is both analytical and practical. For those involved in maritime and commercial law, it provides a comprehensive and authoritative discussion on complex areas of taxation relevant to transnational contracts within the Community. It was a pleasureto read such a clear exposition of what is normally regarded as a somewhat intimidating subject. The authors are to be congratulated for providing a stimulating work which is well-presented and clearly indexed. They provide a useful list of 'Further Reading' in the fields touched on by their book.EC Tax Law will be well received by those specialised in the field of taxation and those whose work concerns transnatioanl contracts who require some knowledge of the Community dimension which is of ever-increasing significance.'Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly
