On September 30, 2014 a reaction of the Government of Luxembourg to the publication of the decision by the European Commission was published on the website of the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance. In this reaction the Luxembourg Government a.o. states the following:
“The publication itself is a mere formal step in the procedure. The text published contains no new elements. Luxembourg has submitted all requested information to the Commission and is fully cooperating with the Commission in the investigation. It is confident that the allegations of State aid in this case are unsubstantiated and that it will be able to convince the Commission in due time of the legitimacy of the tax ruling concerned.”
