Extension Of EU Cross Border Ruling Has Been Extended

The pilot scheme which was introduced in June 2013 whereby businesses have been able to submit details of cross-border transactions involving 2 or more EU member states to the applicable tax authorities for a ruling on the relevant 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 now totalling 18 countries and will continue until the 30th September 2018.
