EBA publishes version 2.0 of note on impact of EU VAT Fraud Directive

The EBA has published an updated version 2.0 of the note on the impact of the EU VAT Fraud Directive.

As of 1 January 2024, the Directive requires PSPs to keep records of, and make available to their national tax authority, data on cross-border payments – even those transacted within SEPA’s geographical scope. The aim is to enable tax authorities to carry out controls to achieve their objective of combatting value-added tax (VAT) fraud. The scope of the obligation includes all payment instruments, including credit transfers, direct debits and card payments (both credit and debit).
