European Union Taxation. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling concerning the interpretation of the concept of 'liquidation' in art4(1) of Council Directive (EC) 90-435 (on the common system of taxation applicable in the case of parent companies and subsidiaries of different member states) in the context of the obligation to avoid economic double taxation of distributed profits and found that the dissolution of a company in the context of merger by acquisition could not be considered to be a liquidation for the purposes of that directive.
