Product Description: When the Statute for a European Company enters into force in October 2004, companies will have the opportunity to form an EU-wide organisation that will, in many essential areas of activity, be vested with the authority to transcend the company law of Member States. As this moment approaches, company executives and lawyers are asking many questions about the potential advantages and disadvantages of choosing to become part of this Societas Europeae (SE) that has been on the Community agenda almost from the start. This book has more answers#65533;clear when they can be categorically expressed, highly illuminating when dealing with the complex issues that still remain#65533;than any other book designed to elucidate this major new development in European law.

The Statute will afford companies a far greater degree of flexibility and mobility throughout Member States than they have heretofore enjoyed. The authors of this book detail the various forms of incorporation allowed by the Statute, as well as the regulations governing share capital, transfer of registered offices, and company organs and their members. The in-depth analysis of the SE regime goes on to examine the areas in which Member State procedures will remain predominant, such as registration, publication, legal scrutiny, accounting and auditing, winding up, insolvency, and liquidation. The vexed issue of employee involvement is explored in a separate chapter.

The book devotes six of its thirteen chapters to the most obvious business element on which the SE is silent#65533;the crucial issue of taxation. Extrapolating from a detailed examination of the European tax directives and related conventions and proposals, the authors convincingly demonstrate that the European Company Statute will necessarily expedite the harmonisation of tax laws among the Member States. In their conclusion, they present a framework for a corporate tax system that they believe is compatible with both the European company and national tax laws.

The European Company Statute will be of immeasurable value to business persons, lawyers, and academics in a number of relevant fields everywhere, as it deals incisively with important matters affecting any company activity in Europe, whatever its origin. It will prove an incomparable guide to informed and rational decision making concerning European business.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
