EU committee backs reduced e-book VAT proposal

31 May 2017

The European Parliaments Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee has voted in favour of the EU Commission's proposal to bring the VAT treatment of digital publications into line with printed publications.

Currently digital publications should be subject to the standard rate of VAT across the EU, while printed publications (offering the same reading content) are normally taxed at reduced rates.

The proposal is now pending to be voted on by the European parliament as a whole at the end of May 2017.
