Answer given by Mr Moscovici on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-004052/2018

Council Regulation (EU) No 904/2010 establishes Eurofisc as a network for the swift exchange of targeted information between Member States.

Currently, Eurofisc is a voluntary network between competent authorities, organised in working fields. Optional participation gives the possibility to the Member States to participate only in the working fields of specific areas where they suffer from potential Value Added Tax (VAT) losses, and every Member State can decide to join a working field at any moment when this is considered necessary.

The new measures adopted in June 2018 do not envisage the participation of the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) or Europol in the Eurofisc data exchanges. At the same time, the Commission believes that to tackle VAT fraud a multidisciplinary approach is necessary.

Therefore, in the changes that were adopted in June 2018, it was agreed to give Eurofisc working field coordinators the power to exchange processed and analysed information with OLAF and Europol.

This will result in Europol and OLAF receiving targeted and pre-analysed data and hopefully, will further promote this cooperation.
