Corporate exit taxation is an important obstacle to the deepening of economic integration within the internal market and beyond, as it distorts cross-border business activities of multinational enterprises and hinders cross-border business reorganisations. This article argues that the problems related to corporate exit taxation can only be addressed in a satisfactory way through co-ordination. It describes how a co-ordinated corporate exit taxation regime should be designed and how it could be implemented within the EU, in the context of a common corporate tax base or through a targeted harmonisation measure, as well as outside the EU in Double Taxation Conventions.
