Luxembourg changes tax rules for companies

Luxembourg's finance ministry announced on Tuesday the Duchy is changing its tax rules for companies, making it more difficult for multinationals to avoid paying taxes through international structure.

The ministry statement said the law was drafted after contacts with the commission.
