About these proceedings


The interaction of tax and corporate governance forms an emerging issue both in business and administrative practice and in academic research. International organisations (OECD, EC) have begun to explore the effects corporate governance rules exert on the tax policy of large business; governments try to employ corporate and securities law as a means to further their fiscal interest. Academic research shows that well-known principal-agent and capital market problems are strongly influenced by tax considerations. Against this background, this volume is the first to present a fully-fledged overview of the interdependence of tax and corporate governance. Not only the basic political, legal and economic questions but also major topics like income measurement, shareholding structures, corporate social responsibility and tax shelter disclosure are covered extensively by leading authors.
