Answer given by Mr Moscovici on behalf of the Commission

In its Action Plan on VAT[1] the Commission outlined two options for granting Member States more freedom in setting VAT rates. The proposal on VAT rates, currently planned for 2017, could include an extension of the list of goods and services that are currently eligible for reduced rates and also greater freedom on the number of rates and their level. The European Parliament and Council were asked for clear political guidance and the proposal will depend on the political choice made by the Member States in the Council.
