European Economic and Social Committee adopts opinion on VAT Action Plan
On 12 August 2016, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) published its Opinion on the VAT Action Plan, which was presented by the European Commission on 7 April 2016 (see European Union-2, News 7 April 2016).
In the Opinion, the EESC welcomed the Action Plan and the approach taken by the European Commission, which is based on four components: (i) the single European VAT area, (ii) tackling the VAT gap and fraud, (iii) policy initiatives on e-commerce and SMEs and (iv) modernization of the VAT rates policy.
More specifically, the EESC endorses the implementation of the destination principle for the definitive VAT system, and it suggests the introduction of a generalized reverse charge mechanism for all cross-border transactions between taxable persons. At the same time, the EESC highlights the need to make the VAT system more business friendly by adding clarity and legal certainty.
Finally, the EESC emphasizes the importance of implementing the Action Plan as an indivisible whole and of monitoring properly the transition to the definitive system.
The Opinion is available here.
