Incentive to cut VAT on fruits and vegetables
Coalition parties have been putting forward the proposal to reduce VAT on fruits and vegetables. As we have seen with ‘green’ initiatives both in Europe and globally, fiscal measures are often intrinsically linked to social and political reforms. Coalition parties in the Netherlands are hoping that reducing VAT will help curb obesity and other health-related illnesses in the country. Proposals for a reduced rate are yet to be carved into law and are currently being discussed. Tungsten Network is continually reviewing tax rate changes in Europe. The Tungsten Web Form facility currently includes the option to select all valid Dutch VAT rates. We will ensure that any new valid VAT rates, if applicable, will be integrated as part of our portal solution.
