Article by Robin Godman, Senior Tax Adviser for a major international oil company. This article appeared in the November 2004 issue of Tax Adviser.

Because the ECJ does indeed exert a significant influence now, and this shows no sign of abating, all advisers should be aware of what the ECJ can do and how far it can reach. But how did this come about, what is the current focus, and what can be drawn from ECJ decisions?
