International Taxes: EU Direct Tax Group

EUDTG is PwC’s pan-European network of EU law experts. We specialise in all areas of direct tax, including the fundamental freedoms, EU directives and State aid rules. You will be only too well aware that EU direct tax law is moving quickly, and it’s difficult to keep up. But, it is crucial that taxpayers with an EU or EEA presence understand the impact as they explore their activities, opportunities and investment decisions.

Our newsalerts are designed to keep you up to date on landmark ECJ judgments and opinions, as well as EU and national developments in Europe in the field of direct taxation and state aid.

It is unlawful in the European Union to provide State Aid to undertakings without prior authorization by the EU Commission. If no such authorization has been granted, the aid may be recovered subject to a time limit of 10 years. Our EU-wide State Aid Working Group helps our clients identify and proactively manage EU State Aid risks.
