European Commission Opens Public Consultation on the Evaluation of VAT Invoicing Rules

European Commisison, 2018

On 13 June 2018, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the evaluation of VAT invoicing rules. Submissions are welcome until 20 September 2018.

The scope of the consultation is to collect data and evidence needed to evaluate the invoicing rules introduced by the Second Invoicing Directive (Directive 2010/45/EU).

In particular, the data gathered through the consultation should allow identification and quantification of the regulatory costs, benefits, savings and burden reduction and simplification potential for businesses generated by the invoicing rules. Special focus will be on electronic invoicing (eInvoicing) and data gathered through the consultation should allow to measure and better understand the uptake of eInvoicing in the EU.

The questionnaire takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Translations of the questionnaire into Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish will be available subsequently.

The European Commission supports eInvoicing in Europe through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Building Block. CEF is the EU’s main financing instrument for trans-European infrastructure. In 2018, €5 million in grant funding is available via CEF to support compliant eInvoicing, the deadline for applications being 18 September 2018.
