Officials from the largest European telecomms suppliers are today quizzing European Commission executives about moves to impose VAT on services from outside suppliers.
The delegates in Brussels represent the Ernst & Young Telecommunications Forum, which is made up of suppliers including AT&T, BT, Mercury plus the Deutsche Telecom/France Telecom joint venture, Global One.
They are concerned that proposals - which aim to close the loophole that allows non-EU suppliers not to charge VAT to their European customers - will confuse consumers, are too narrowly drafted and will add to complexity of tax payments.
