EU law and judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union (‘the European Court’) have an increasing direct influence on the tax laws of each Member State of the European Union and indirectly beyond the European Union in the so-called EEA countries. This applies as much to direct axes such as income tax and corporation tax as to the EU-wide tax, VAT.
