This book provides comprehensive analysis of the recent enlargement of the EU, shedding light on the rationale behind the EU's decisions to enlarge, examining the side effects these choices have on a range of EU policies and particularly on the effect of the Acquis on candidate countries. Emphasis is placed on the area of company law, which occupies a central part in a country's economic planning and therefore its commercial law. Past enlargements are thoroughly explained and the potential impact of the new political landscape in Europe in the wake of the popular rejection of the European Constitutional Treaty on future enlargements is evaluated. A comparative methodology for commercial law drafting in transition and developing economies is put forward and the book concludes with a complete draft of a model company law for transition (and developing) economies. The aim is to provide a template for discussion. This book will be of great interest to those interested in considering the influence that the prospect of EU membership has on transition countries in general, the emphasis being on laws vital to emerging market economies, particularly commercial and company law.

  • The Statute of the European Company-- the tax issue. (Part contents).
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)9789041120274 20160528
When the Statute for a European Company enters into force in October 2004, companies will have the opportunity to form an EU-wide organization that will, in many essential areas of activity, be vested with the authority to transcend the company law of Member States. As this moment approaches, company executives and lawyers are asking many questions about the potential advantages and disadvantages of choosing to become part of this Societas Europeae (SE) that has been on the Community agenda almost from the start. This work deals with the complex issues that still remain. The Statute will afford companies a far greater degree of flexibility and mobility throughout Member States than they have heretofore enjoyed. The authors of this text detail the various forms of incorporation allowed by the Statute, as well as the regulations governing share capital, transfer of registered offices, and company organs and their members. The in-depth analysis of the SE regime goes on to examine the areas in which Member State procedures will remain predominant, such as registration, publication, legal scrutiny, accounting and auditing, winding up, insolvency and liquidation. The vexed issue of employee involvement is explored in a separate chapter. The book devotes six of its 13 chapters to the most obvious business element on which the SE is silent - the crucial issue of taxation. Extrapolating from a detailed examination of the European tax directives and related conventions and proposals, the authors demonstrate that the European Company Statute will expedite the harmonization of tax laws among the Member States. In their conclusion, they present a framework for a corporate tax system that they believe is compatible with both the European company and national tax laws.

This text has four separate aims. Firstly, it provides an account of the development of the European company law programme and a description of the legal provisions adopted since the programme began in the early 1960s. Secondly, the book aims to introduce readers to the company laws of a member state whose legal system is little-known in the UK. For this reason Spain is the chosen comparator against the implementation measures of the UK. The book is also concerned with the problem of democracy, both at European level and at the level of the company, as these two levels require different forms of democracy. The third aim of the book is therefore to explore the problems of representative democracy in the European Community, using the company law programme as a case study by which to assess the quality of the Community's representative democracy. Finally, the book also explores the arguments for and against participatory democracy at the level of the firm. It aims to present an argument which suggests that it is possible to establish democracy in the company and that this will be necessary for the future progress of the European company law programme.

On 8 October 2004, the Council Regulation (EC) No. 2157/2001 on the Statute for the European Company (SE) will enter into force. In order to make the SE a functional instrument for entrepreneurs and investors, as well as to ensure the effective application of European law, it is necessary to pass national implementation measures by then. National legislators have the opportunity as well as the challenge to shape, in some respect, a national model of the SE which would be attractive for investors and would influence their decision as to where the company be located. Thus, the coming into force of the SE-Regulation will also give "the starting shot" for the competition between national legislators with regard to the law of the European Company. The aim of the present book is to provide the first indications in those national regulations specifically concerning the SE. Although no national law has so far been finally adopted, the first legislative steps have already been taken in many Member States and first drafts have been published. These drafts are presented in the book by the national experts. Moreover, the authors from Member States where no official drafts so far exist, express their personal reflections on how the specific regulations of national law would and should look. Given the fact that in October 2004, when the SE-Regulation comes into force, the European Union will be enlarged by 10 new Member States, the reports cover also some of them, i.e. Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

The work challenges the commonly accepted idea that the European single market needs a harmonized company law as a precondition for tis correct fucntioning, on the basis of a law and economics comparison with the American situation. The Study critically analyzes the two major reasons advances to justify harmonization--the race to the bottom argument and the standardization argument--on the basis of the regulatory compettion paradigm and concludes that they are basically wrong. Instead of pursuing harmonization fo substantive compnay law, the proposal is to adjust conflict of law rules in favor of the incorporation theory as ruled by the European Couurt of justice in its important Centros-decision of March 1999/ Companies should be granted freedom of establishment and free movement among jurisdictions in the European Union. Contents: EC company law: the state of the art--The theory of regulation and regulatory competition--The American market for corporate charters--The European market for corporate charters--Policy conclusions.

The European company ('SE') is a new legal entity offering a European perspective for businesses, which became a reality on 8 October 2004. Its purpose is to allow businesses that wish to extend their activities beyond their home Member State to operate throughout the EU on the basis of a single set of rules and a unified management system. This book explains how to set up and organise a European company, and sets out the text of the relevant EC instruments that serve as its legal basis, as well as the national implementing legislation. It is essential for businesses and their advisers to understand the implementing legislation of the relevant Member States in deciding where to establish an SE. This book provides comprehensive coverage of such legislation in all Member States of the European Economic Area which have, as at 1 July 2005, implemented the Regulation containing the SE statute and the Directive on employee involvement in the SE.

Making European Merger Policy More Predictable analyses European Merger Control with regard to its capacity to generate predictability among the concerned parties. Starting from the premise that predictability is of overwhelming importance for the functioning of market economies, Voigt and Schmidt ask to what degree European Merger Control has been predictable over the last couple of years. The authors show both theoretically and empirically that there have been serious shortcomings with regard to the predictability of competition policy. They identify the insufficient recognition of the consequences of globalization on the competitive processes as well as an often inconsistent application of economic theory as the root causes for the lack of predictability. The inconsistent application of economic theory is particularly relevant with regard to potential competition and the evaluation of collective dominance. The authors generate a substantial number of proposals that could help to improve predictability. On this basis, Voigt and Schmidt critically assess the recent reforms of European Merger Control.
