The EU VAT Forum, bringing together Member States' VAT authorities and business representatives, has made a first evaluation of the VAT cross-border rulings pilot case that started in June 2013.
All participants (Belgium, Estonia, Spain, France, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Hungary, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom) expressed positive views regarding the handling of the first CBR cases. They also acknowledged the need to give more visibility to this project in order to raise more awareness among business, in particular SMEs. The participating Member States and the business representatives also expressed the wish that more – or even all – Member States become involved in this initiative.
