Having participated in ECCVAT’s campaign to lobby the European Commission over the ‘unfair’ VAT burden facing nonprofits across member states, EFA is disappointed to see the Commission’s proposals for reform.




Although the proposals published last month, do acknowledge the burden facing nonprofits, they do not provide any new solutions for organisations.  Rather, they encourage wider use of existing targeted refund schemes which are resisted by many member states.


John Hemming, Chairman of ECCVAT, provides a full analysis of the proposals in Fundraising Europe’s expert view column.
