The European Commission has launched a public consultation to gather opinion on the application of reduced VAT rates for digital publications. Currently these types of supplies incur the standard rate of VAT across the EU, while printed publications (offering the same reading content) are taxed at reduced rates.
This consultation will run until 19 September 2016 and it is hoped that the European Commission will use this to reduce the VAT rate applied on digital publications going forward.
Participants of the consultation are required to fill in an online questionnaire. Please see below for a link to the webpage:
