The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the fight against VAT fraud and administrative cooperation in the area of VAT. The consultation stems directly from the Commission’s VAT Action Plan, in which addressing the VAT gap and tackling VAT fraud received prominent attention. This consultation aims, in particular, to gather views from stakeholders about their experience of the current rules governing administrative cooperation and fight against cross-border fraud in the field of VAT; to bring new insights for the on-going evaluation of Regulation (EU) 904/2010 (administrative cooperation on VAT); to provide information about possible improvements including ‘VIES on-the-web’; and to collect quantitative data on possible reduction or increase of regulatory costs/benefits (administrative burden and/or compliance costs) for businesses (in particular SMEs). The deadline for providing responses is 31 May.
