VAT Fraud Tracker

Monitor VAT fraud

The tool “VAT Fraud Tracker” helps to monitor VAT fraud by identifying products and industries which may be exposed to risk relating to tax fraud.

The EU countries’ annual losses due to VAT fraud represent the equivalent of Bulgaria’s GDP

VAT fraud is becoming increasingly common. The scale of the problem can be seen in the European Commission’s estimates according to which VAT fraud is responsible for member states’ annual revenue losses of approximately EUR 45–53 billion a year.

VAT fraudsters demonstrate high inter-industry mobility – they can steal VAT on many commodity groups at the same time. The scale and omnipresence of such fraud has made combating this phenomenon a priority for the governments of EU countries.

The tax authorities present a more decisive approach to recovering lost budget proceeds. Unfortunately, in practice the obligation to combat VAT fraud is often passed on to honest taxpayers. They can already feel the effects of being involved in fraudulent transaction chains – VAT carousels.
