Reduced VAT rate for e-publications

19-12-2018

The fact that print and digital publications have been subject to separate value added tax (VAT) rates essentially means that products that are considered to be comparable and substitutable have been treated differently to one another. This situation resulted from rules which, on the one hand, allowed Member States to apply reduced rates to printed publications, but on the other excluded this possibility for digital publications. In addition, the evolution in the VAT framework means that VAT on digital ...

The fact that print and digital publications have been subject to separate value added tax (VAT) rates essentially means that products that are considered to be comparable and substitutable have been treated differently to one another. This situation resulted from rules which, on the one hand, allowed Member States to apply reduced rates to printed publications, but on the other excluded this possibility for digital publications. In addition, the evolution in the VAT framework means that VAT on digital services should be levied in the Member State where the consumer is based (thus protecting the single market from application of different rates within a Member State because of the different location of providers). The question of broadening the possibility to apply reduced rates to all publications, be they print or digital, was addressed as part of the VAT digital single market package. The amendment to the VAT directive was adopted by the Council on 6 November 2018, after the European Parliament had delivered its opinion on 1 June 2017. The new rules allow Member States to apply the reduced rate to e-publications, as from 4 December 2018.

Fair taxation of the digital economy

05-12-2018

In order to make tax rules fit for the digital economy, the European Commission proposed two Council directives in March 2018: a short-term solution, to be delivered by an interim digital services tax on revenues from certain digital services, and a permanent reform of the corporate tax rules, based on the concept of 'significant digital presence'. The European Parliament is expected to vote on the proposals during its December plenary session.

VAT Fraud: Economic Impact, Challenges and Policy Issues

15-10-2018

Each year, the EU Member States lose billions of euros in VAT revenues on account of fraud. As the EU VAT system is undergoing profound modernisation, this study seeks (i) to take stock of the current state of play, (ii) to assess the current regulatory framework and the proposals under discussion, and (iii) to offer a selection of recommendations. An initial conclusion is that, while the European Commission has put a considerable amount of work into the modernisation of the EU VAT system, remaining ...

Each year, the EU Member States lose billions of euros in VAT revenues on account of fraud. As the EU VAT system is undergoing profound modernisation, this study seeks (i) to take stock of the current state of play, (ii) to assess the current regulatory framework and the proposals under discussion, and (iii) to offer a selection of recommendations. An initial conclusion is that, while the European Commission has put a considerable amount of work into the modernisation of the EU VAT system, remaining risks of fraud cannot be ignored. A second substantial conclusion is that a different approach and the use of new technologies would allow the Member States to remove significant obstacles that currently impede an effective fight against VAT fraud. This study was provided by Policy Department A at the request of the TAX3 Committee.

La lutte contre les flux financiers illicites: un enjeu de développement

29-08-2018

Les scandales financiers à répétition révélés dans les médias, à l’instar des Panama Papers, ont intensifié le débat public sur les paradis fiscaux, l’évasion fiscale et les fuites illicites de capitaux. Forcément difficiles à estimer, les flux financiers illicites (FFI), c’est-à-dire les fonds reçus, transférés ou utilisés de façon illégale au-delà de la frontière d’un pays, sont un phénomène d’une grande ampleur, aux formes diverses et se nourrissant de l’opacité de la structure financière internationale ...

Les scandales financiers à répétition révélés dans les médias, à l’instar des Panama Papers, ont intensifié le débat public sur les paradis fiscaux, l’évasion fiscale et les fuites illicites de capitaux. Forcément difficiles à estimer, les flux financiers illicites (FFI), c’est-à-dire les fonds reçus, transférés ou utilisés de façon illégale au-delà de la frontière d’un pays, sont un phénomène d’une grande ampleur, aux formes diverses et se nourrissant de l’opacité de la structure financière internationale. Bien qu’il n’épargne aucun pays, son impact se fait sentir le plus lourdement dans les pays les plus pauvres. En effet, les FFI transfèrent à l’étranger les richesses qui auraient pu être investies localement, grèvent des recettes publiques déjà faibles, et corrompent les institutions étatiques, contribuant ainsi à maintenir ou aggraver les niveaux de pauvreté et d’inégalité. Les mesures prises au niveau international, complément nécessaire à toute politique interne pour s’attaquer aux FFI, qui dépassent les frontières, ont proliféré mais elles manquent de cohérence et d’universalité. Les listes de paradis fiscaux établies notamment par l’OCDE et l’Union européenne sont très succinctes alors que, dans la pratique, de nombreuses juridictions, souvent de pays développés, continuent d’opérer de cette manière. Alors que les pays en développement manquent d’environ 2500 milliards USD pour investir en vue d’atteindre les Objectifs de développement durable en 2030, une lutte plus efficace contre les FFI devrait être une priorité, comme l’a souligné le Parlement européen à plusieurs reprises.
