Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would support the harmonisation of tax systems, but not tax rates.  I.e. common accountancy standards, common definitions of "profits", common definitions of write-offs - e.g. for R&D - so that companies locating in the EU can use the same accountancy systems to settle their tax liabilities in all Members states - even if (e.g.) Germany charges 30% and Ireland 15% on a common definition of what the taxable income is, and which income arises in Germany and which in Ireland.
