EU-Cross-border ruling pilot extended

Since June 2013, a pilot scheme has been in operation whereby businesses have been able to submit details of proposed cross-border transactions (involving 2+ EU member states) to the relevant tax authorities for a ruling on the applicable VAT treatment. Receiving a ruling is dependent on the member states in question being involved in the pilot, as well as a number of conditions and documentary requirements being met.

It has recently been announced that additional member states have joined the scheme, taking the number of participating countries to 18. In addition an extension to the project has been announced until 30 September 2018.
