Better cooperation in cross border tax collection

The Commission adopted today tools that will allow better cross border recovery of tax debts by Member States. These tools include, in particular, a uniform instrument to allow debt recovery decisions to be enforced. The aim is to avoid problems of translation and recognition of foreign legal and procedural instruments. Another concrete tool is a uniform notification form that will enable taxpayers in other Member States to be notified of official documents and decisions. The measures adopted today, which are part of the implementing measures for the Directive on mutual assistance in the recovery of claims , will facilitate and accelerate cooperation between Member States’ tax administrations, leading to more efficient revenue collection.
