Summary
In this article the authors address the proposal to transform the status of the VAT Committee into a "comitology committee" tabled by the European Commission in December 2020. The proposal basically confers implementation powers to the Commission via comitology in the area of EU Value Added Tax. If adopted by the EU Member States, this would lead to a groundbreaking situation in which for the first time in the area of taxation the decision-making based on unanimity of EU Member States is dropped in an area that does directly affect the EU Member States' national tax revenues. The authors take this opportunity to explain the function and the consequences of the comitology procedure. After describing the core of the proposal, the authors pay a visit to other legislative areas in taxation where the comitology procedures apply before they dive deep into the scope of the powers granted under the proposal and reach a conclusion. The authors doubt whether the proposal will be adopted and whether EU Member States are prepared to confer more powers to the European Commission
