A report published by the European Commission proposal provides for, among others, creation of a single EU-wide set of requirements that companies should meet in respect of the VAT return. Businesses would have to submit the VAT monthly, while a micro companies only quarterly. Proposed is the abolition of the obligation to submit EC sales lists.
