ACE has submitted a written response to the European Commission, DG Taxation Consultation on “Review of existing legislation on VAT reduced rates”.
The EC’s stated aim is to create a “simpler, more efficient and more robust” VAT system in the EU, partly by removing certain reduced rates which are believed to “constitute an obstacle to the proper functioning of the internal market”.
The EC has already conducted some evaluation of the existing VAT structure, and this consultation focuses on key areas that require further consideration, including the reduced VAT rate for certain energy products.
