UK Trade with EU

Question for Treasury

UIN 100699, tabled on 10 January 2022

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many queries HMRC has received from UK businesses about the VAT regimes and operation of EU member states.

Answered on

18 January 2022

HMRC is not able to advise on the VAT regimes of EU member states and its correspondence systems do not systematically record where queries specifically relate to EU VAT regimes. When HMRC receives such enquiries, it directs businesses to guidance on EU websites or advises them to contact the relevant tax authority.
