|Title:||Proposal to amend Regulation (EU) No 904/2010 as regards the certified taxable person|
|Series/Date:||COM (2017) 567 final|
|Notes:||The European Commission adopted on 4 October 2017 a proposal amending Regulation (EU) No 904/2010 on administrative co-operation and combating fraud in the field of value added tax (VAT Administrative Cooperation Regulation).
The Commission adopted an amended version of this proposal on 30 November, adding tools to tackle loopholes and fraud attempts in the context of the EU's VAT system [COM(2017)706].
The amendments to the Regulation intended to give a practical effect to the certified taxable person status, which is a basic component of the definitive VAT regime for intra-Union trade.
The certified taxable person status is also relevant in relation to certain improvements to the current system requested by Member States; namely in relation to rules on chain transactions, call-off stock situations and the proof of transport in exempt intra-Community supplies of goods.
This proposal was adopted as part of a package of measures relating to the introduction of a definitive VAT system for intra-EU cross-border trade based on the principle of taxation in the Member State of destination of the goods. The strategy was put forward by the Action Plan on VAT published in April 2016.
A Communication reporting on the actions taken in the framework of the Action Plan was released together with this proposal, also on 4 October 2017.
