Abstract: The aim of this paper is to research the profit shifting behaviour within the same multinational group of companies. We investigate the sensitivity of pre-tax profit to tax differences between Czech subsidiaries and their sister companies placed in other European Union countries. The profit shifting behaviour is indirectly estimated by adopting Hines-Rice method. The objective of this research is to determine whether the reported pre-tax income is sensitive to the corporate income tax (CIT) differences. We expect an inversely related reaction of profit before taxation to tax differential. The degree of sensitivity should depend on the particular tax advantageous position of the Czech Republic relative to the other EU countries high corporate tax rates.
