The Commission adopted on 7 April 2016 the Action Plan on VAT. There the Commission announced, inter alia, its intention to adopt a definitive VAT system for intra-Union cross-border trade based on the principle of taxation in the Member State of destination of the goods in order to create a robust single European VAT area.

This proposal is a step towards replacing the transitional arrangements, applicable since 1 January 1993, by a definitive VAT system for intra-Union Business-to-Business (B2B) trade under which domestic and cross-border transactions of goods will be treated in the same way. The proposal introduces the cornerstones of the definitive system for intra-Union (B2B) trade. A forthcoming proposal in 2018 will provide detailed technical provisions for the actual implementation of these cornerstones.
