 This series of Roundtables provides a unique opportunity to participate in high level discussions with national and international policy makers; national and EU tax authorities and specialists from business.

On 18 February 2016, FEE organised the 3rd roundtable of its series dedicated to VAT legislation in Europe, titled Time for action! How the Commission’s Action Plan will shape VAT in Europe. It brought together over 100 representatives from the policy-making and business communities, coming from more than 20 EU countries. In his keynote speech, Mr. Donato Raponi, Head of the VAT Unit at DG TAXUD, presented some insights on the upcoming European Commission’s VAT Action Plan. The purpose of the following panel debate was to share views on and hopes for the anticipated EC’s new VAT proposal, and to identify limitations in existing VAT rules as well as issues with potential solutions. (For more information, see the summary below).
