The European Commission decided today to send a letter of formal notice to Hungary for infringing EU VAT rules.

Under the Electronic Trade and Transport Control System (EKAER) system, companies are obliged to provide the Hungarian tax authorities with detailed information for VAT purposes on certain business-owned transport that use public roads. This requirement infringes the VAT Directive as it primarily affects cross-border EU transactions and introduces administrative formalities connected with the crossing of borders. If Hungary does not act within the next two months, the Commission may send a reasoned opinion to the Hungarian authorities.
