IRU Resolution on dysfunctioning VAT recuperation systems, 2010

This IRU Resolution warns of a liquidity crisis and company bankruptcies in the road transport sector if the dysfunctioning of national VAT refund systems within the EU remain unsolved and therefore advocates extending the deadline for the submission of 2009 VAT claims until a properly functioning VAT refund system is restored, reintroducing the pre-2010 paper-based submission process to clear the backlog of unpaid claims, as well as agreeing over a timetabled plan developed together with the industry for removing technical problems from the system. The IRU Resolution also stresses the need to address the fragmentation of rules for reimbursing VAT to non-EU operators and work towards harmonised arrangements at EU level to be negotiated with third countries, ensuring consistency and equal treatment for all.
