Luxembourg Ordered to Give EU Tax-Deal Detail Amid Aid Probe

European Union competition watchdogs ordered Luxembourg to hand over details of tax breaks for businesses after they said the Grand Duchy was hindering a state-aid probe spanning several EU nations.

Luxembourg refused to deliver details concerning the 100 largest companies benefiting from a special program for companies whose profits stem from intellectual-property rights, the European Commission said in an e-mailed statement. The nation also failed to provide a specific overview of its tax deals with certain companies in 2011 and 2012.
