On September 30, the European Commission reappointed TEI as a member of the VAT Expert Group for a three-year term. The VAT Expert Group was established in 2012 to “advise the Commission on the preparation of legislative acts and other policy initiatives in the field of VAT” and to “provide insight concerning the practical implementation of legislative acts and other EU policy initiatives in the field of VAT.” The VAT Expert Group most recently met on October 17 in Brussels.
TEI has participated as a member of the VAT Expert Group since its inception. Allard van Nes will continue to serve as TEI’s primary representative, and Lorry Limbourg will serve as his alternate. TEI thanks Lynne Clare for her work as the alternate representative during TEI’s prior term.
