The bill of law to implement the provisions of the EU Directive 2016/1164 on anti-tax avoidance in Luxembourg law was made available on 20 June 2018. Subject to parliamentary approval, Luxembourg will introduce controlled foreign corporation, interest deduction limitation and anti-hybrid rules. It will also modify its existing general anti-abuse rule and, exit tax provisions. Additionally, Luxembourg will change its interpretation of the permanent establishment concept to avoid mismatches and will abrogate the existing roll-over relief for a lender converting loans into shares issued by the debtor. The new rules will apply as from 1 January 2019, with the exception of the amended exit tax rules, due to enter into force on 1 January 2020.
