Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If we get a definition of which income arises where and tax it where arise, then I think the problem is solved and where headquarters are will be a question of building an efficient headquarter, not dodging taxes. Then corporate taxes could very well be different in different countries.

If we do not get such a definition, my suggestion would be a federal corporate tax, the money from which (actually not really, but similar amount) is handed out equally to the citizens of EU. This would always benefit the poorer members (as 100 euros in Roumania buys more then 100 euros in France), while making sure corporate tax can not be dodged.
