This monthly briefing note will be a little bit different than the regular ones as the first article of the document will be a quick summary of the findings of the exploratory study we produced, on the potential evolutions of VAT rates for veterinary services within the European Union.

As you will see below, we explored two possibilities: the option to exclude veterinary services from the Services directive and the potential revision on the VAT rates at European level.

Our main conclusion is that any evolution on this topic will be difficult to secure and will take time. Nevertheless, we believe that it is important for our organisation to meet with key actors of the decision-making process on these two dossiers in order to gain information and decide whether or not to launch more actions on the subject.
