EC’s exchange of data to combat VAT fraud in the e-commerce

We responded to the European Commissions’s consultation Exchange of data to combat VAT fraud in the e-commerce.

We congratulate the Commission for the proposed measures to combat VAT-related fraud in e-commerce. Enhanced co-operation on automatic exchange of payment data and better exchange of best practice and data analytic tools could help to more effectively fight online VAT Fraud. Although Member States have today sufficient regulatory tools to fight online fraud, tax authorities often lack the funding and resources to fully exploit these regulatory tools.
