A discussion forum on these topics is forthcoming in Bulgaria, organized by the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. The European Commission is currently working intensively on a new package, utilizing positive tax integration to overcome obstacles to the internal market. This is the "Business in Europe: The Framework for Income Taxation (BEFIT)" initiative, which will propose a comprehensive solution for corporate taxation in the EU. It will soon become clear whether unanimity will be achieved on the proposed new directives in the package.

In addition to initiatives and legal instruments in the field of positive tax integration, the European Commission has actively used instruments of negative tax integration in the field of corporate income taxation in recent years. Its decisions are the subject of a series of cases in the Court of Justice of the European Union and the General Court (the Union's courts) concerning "targeted state aid" (advanced transfer pricing agreements, tax rulings, tax assessment notices issued by tax administrations).
