III.1. Court of Justice of the European Union

Judgment of the Court of 2 of March of 2017, Case C-496/15:
Reference for a preliminary ruling. Freedom of movement for workers. Article 45 TFEU. Regulation (EU) No 492/2011. Article 7. Equal treatment. Frontier worker subject to income tax in the Member State of residence. Benefit paid by the Member State of employment in the event of the employer’s insolvency. Detailed rules for the calculation of the insolvency benefit. Notional taking into account of the income tax of the Member State of employment. Insolvency benefit lower than the previous net remuneration. Bilateral convention for the avoidance of double taxation.

Article 45 TFUE and Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 492/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2011 on freedom of movement for workers within the Union must be interpreted as not precluding, in circumstances such as those at issue in the main proceedings, the amount of the insolvency benefit awarded by a Member State to a frontier worker who is not subject to income tax in that State, and for whom that benefit, under the provisions applicable to him, is not taxable, from being determined by deducting income tax, as it applies in that State, from the remuneration used to calculate that benefit, with the consequence that that frontier worker, unlike persons working and residing in that State, does not receive a benefit corresponding to his previous net remuneration. The fact that that worker does not have a claim against his employer corresponding to the part of his previous gross salary which he has not received because of that deduction has no effect in that regard.”

Judgement of the Court, of March 8, Case C-448/15: Reference for a preliminary ruling — Parent companies and subsidiaries established in different Member States — Common system of taxation applicable — Corporation tax — Directive 90/435/EEC — Scope — Article 2(c) — Company subject to tax without the possibility of an option or of being exempt — Taxation at a zero rate.

“Council Directive 90/435/EEC of 23 July 1990 on the common system of taxation applicable in the case of parent companies and subsidiaries of different Member States must be construed to the effect that Article 5(1) does not preclude legislation of a Member State whereby an advance tax on investment income is levied on dividends paid by a subsidiary established in that Member State to a fiscal investment institution established in another Member State which is subject to corporation tax at a zero rate, provided that all of its profits are paid to its shareholders, since such an institution does not constitute a ‘company of a Member State’ for the purposes of that directive.”
