CJEU expected to deliver judgment in Case C-185/18, Oro Efectivo (VAT – Commodities (specifically: gold, silver or jewellery))


Question referred for a preliminary ruling:

Does Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax, the principle of tax neutrality arising from that directive, and the case-law of the Court of Justice interpreting the directive preclude a national rule of law under which a Member State may require payment of an indirect tax other than VAT from a business person or professional in respect of the purchase of movable property (specifically, gold, silver or jewellery) from a private individual where:

1  the purchased object is going to be processed and subsequently sold on in the course of that business person’s economic activities;

2  transactions subject to VAT will occur when the purchased property is reintroduced into the course of trade; and

3  in such transactions the applicable legislation in that same Member State does not permit the business person or professional to deduct the amount paid by way of that tax in respect of the initial purchase?

Opinion of the Advocate General expected to be delivered in Case C-75/18, Vodafone Magyarország


Questions referred for a preliminary ruling:

1  Must the provisions of Articles 49, 54, 107 and 108 TFEU be interpreted as precluding a national measure pursuant to which a Member State’s legislation (Law establishing liability to a special tax on telecommunications) has the effect that the actual tax burden falls on foreign-owned taxable persons? Is that effect indirectly discriminatory?

2  Do Articles 107 and 108 TFEU preclude a Member State’s legislation imposing a tax liability on turnover calculated on the basis of a progressive tax rate? If the effect of that legislation is that the actual tax burden, for the highest tax band, falls mainly on foreign-owned taxable persons, is that legislation indirectly discriminatory? Does that effect amount to prohibited State aid?

3  Must Article 401 of the VAT Directive be interpreted as precluding legislation of a Member State that gives rise to a distinction between foreign-owned taxable persons and national taxable persons? Must the special tax be considered a tax on turnover? In other words, is this tax compatible or not with the VAT Directive?
