Parliamentary questions
24 February 2017
E-009364/2016
Answer given by Ms Vestager on behalf of the Commission

In its general tax ruling investigation, the Commission has requested and received about 300 company files from the Member States.

The majority of the tax rulings assessed by the Commission so far contains no indication that the tax rulings deviate from a market outcome, which make the possibility that the tax ruling contain state aid unlikely. However, the assessment is still ongoing.

The Commission has opened seven formal investigation procedures in the context of the tax ruling investigation, and closed four of them with final decisions. If the ongoing assessment of tax rulings and tax rules provides evidence for the existence of aid in other cases, the Commission could open further formal investigations.
