Based on the implementation of the new legislation for cross-border reorganisation, the European Stock Corporation has dramatically gained in importance. An SE is an interesting restructuring option for large multinational groups and SMEs which will operate within Europe across national boundaries. Given this background, the SE will be an important factor for legal and tax advice.
The volume describes the single steps of the foundation procedure and the articles of association of an SE, defines the tax implications and the co-determination within an SE and describes the differences and similarities compared with other legal forms. Further, it includes important decision guidance and practical advice pertaining to an SE. The new Reorganization Tax Reform Act is entirely implemented in the book.
