THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

 

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

 

Having regard to Council Directive 2010/24/EU of 16 March 2010 concerning mutual assistance for the recovery of claims relating to taxes, duties and other measures[1], and in particular Article 26 thereof,

 

Whereas:

 

(1)        Directive 2010/24/EU has substantially changed the rules concerning mutual assistance for the recovery of claims relating to taxes, duties and other measures and newly determined the implementing powers of the Commission, in relation to those laid down in Council Directive 2008/55/EC[2]. Therefore, it is appropriate to replace the existing implementing rules adopted by the Commission by a new implementing Regulation.

 

 

 

(2)        In order to ensure a fast communication between the competent authorities, detailed rules should be adopted with regard to the practical arrangements and the time periods for communication between the requested and the applicant authorities.

 

 

 

(3)        In order to ensure legal certainty, it is appropriate to specify that the validity of documents is not affected by the fact that they are transmitted electronically.

 

 

 

(4)        In order to confirm that documents transmitted by post are sent by a competent authority, it is appropriate to provide specific rules with regard to this way of communication.

 

 

 

(5)        In order to ensure that appropriate data and information are transmitted, models of the standard form accompanying the request for notification and of the instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State should be established.

 

 

 

(6)        In order to ensure legal certainty, it is appropriate to state expressly the legal effect of the notifications made by the requested Member State at the request of the applicant Member State.

 

 

 

(7)        In order to ensure legal certainty, it is also appropriate to specify that the notification or communication of the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State does not have any effect on the consequences of the notification of the initial instrument permitting enforcement, and that the revised instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State does not have any effect on the initial claim or the initial instrument permitting enforcement.

 

 

 

(8)        Commission Regulation (EC) No 1179/2008 of 28 November 2008 laying down detailed rules for implementing certain provisions of Council Directive 2008/55/EC on mutual assistance for the recovery of claims relating to certain levies, duties, taxes and other measures[3] should be repealed.

Article 14

 

For the purposes of notification, the requested Member State may use the uniform notification form, referred to in Article 10(1) in its official language or in one of its official languages in accordance with its national law.


CHAPTER IV - REQUESTS FOR RECOVERY OR FOR PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

 

Article 15

 

Requests for recovery or for precautionary measures shall include a declaration that the conditions laid down in Directive 2010/24/EU for initiating the mutual assistance procedure have been fulfilled.

 

Article 16

 

1.      The uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State accompanying the request for recovery or for precautionary measures shall be completed by or under the responsibility of the applicant authority, on the basis of the initial instrument permitting enforcement in the applicant Member State.

 

The administrative penalties, fines, fees and surcharges referred to in Article 2(2)(a) of Directive 2010/24/EU and the interest and costs referred to in Article 2(2)(c) of that Directive which, in accordance with the rules in force in the applicant Member State, may be due from the date of the initial instrument permitting enforcement until the date before the date on which the recovery request is sent, may be added in the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State.

 

2.      A single uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State may be issued in respect of several claims and several persons, corresponding to the initial instrument permitting enforcement in the applicant Member State.

 

3.      In so far as initial instruments permitting enforcement for several claims in the applicant Member State have already been replaced by a global instrument permitting enforcement for all these claims in that Member State, the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State may be based on the initial instruments permitting enforcement in the applicant Member State or on that global instrument regrouping those initial instruments in the applicant Member State.

 

4.      In order to enforce the claims for which recovery assistance is requested, the requested Member State may use the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in that Member State in its official language or in one of its official languages in accordance with its national law.

 

Article 17

 

The addressee of a request for recovery or precautionary measures may not rely on the notification or communication of the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State to claim a prolongation or a re-opening of the time period to contest the claim or the initial instrument permitting enforcement if that has been validly notified.

 

Article 18

 

1.      If the currency of the requested Member State is different from the currency of the applicant Member State, the applicant authority shall express the amount of the claim to be recovered in both currencies.

 

2.      The exchange rate to be used for the purposes of the recovery assistance shall be the last exchange rate published in the Official Journal of the European Union before the date the request is sent.

 

Article 19

 

1.      The requested authority shall, as soon as possible or in any event within seven calendar days of receipt of the request for recovery or for precautionary measures, acknowledge the receipt of the request.

 

2.      The requested authority may ask the applicant authority to provide additional information or to complete the uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State, if required. The applicant authority shall provide all additional necessary information to which it normally has access.

 

Article 20

 

1.      Where, with respect to the particularity of a case, all or part of the claim cannot be recovered or precautionary measures cannot be taken within a reasonable time, the requested authority shall inform the applicant authority thereof and state the reasons.

 

On the basis of the information received from the requested authority, the applicant authority may request the latter to re-open the procedure for recovery or for precautionary measures. That request shall be made within 2 months of the receipt of the notification of the outcome of that procedure, and shall be treated by the requested authority in accordance with the provisions applying to the initial request.

 

2.      No later than at the end of each six-month period following the date of acknowledgement of the receipt of the request, the requested authority shall inform the applicant authority of the state of progress or the outcome of the procedure for recovery or for precautionary measures.

 

Article 21

 

1.      Any action contesting the claim or the instrument permitting its enforcement which is taken in the Member State of the applicant authority shall be notified to the requested authority by the applicant authority immediately after the applicant authority has been informed of such action.

 

2.      If the laws, regulations and administrative practices in force in the requested Member State do not permit precautionary measures or the recovery requested under the second and third subparagraphs of Article 14(4) of Directive 2010/24/EU, the requested authority shall notify the applicant authority thereof as soon as possible and in any event within 1 month of the receipt of the notification referred to in paragraph 1.

 

3.      The requested authority shall notify any action taken in the requested Member State for reimbursement of sums recovered or for compensation in relation to recovery of contested claims under the third subparagraph of Article 14(4) of Directive 2010/24/EU to the applicant authority immediately after the requested authority has been informed of such action.

 

The requested authority shall as far as possible involve the applicant authority in the procedures for settling the amount to be reimbursed and the compensation due. Upon a reasoned request from the requested authority, the applicant authority shall transfer the sums reimbursed and the compensation paid within 2 months of the receipt of that request.

 

Article 22

 

1.      If the request for recovery or for precautionary measures becomes devoid of purpose as a result of payment of the claim or of its cancellation or for any other reason, the applicant authority shall immediately inform the requested authority so that the latter may stop any action which it has undertaken.

 

2.      Where the amount of the claim which is the subject of the request for recovery or for precautionary measures is adjusted by a decision of the competent body referred to in Article 14(1) of Directive 2010/24/EU, the applicant authority shall inform the requested authority of that decision and, if recovery is requested, communicate a revised uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State. This revised uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State shall be made by or under the responsibility of the applicant authority, on the basis of the decision adjusting the amount of the claim.

 

3.      A revised uniform instrument permitting enforcement in the requested Member State does not have any consequences with regard to the possibilities to contest the initial claim, the initial instrument permitting enforcement in the applicant Member State or the decision referred to in the preceding subparagraph.

 

4.      If the adjustment referred to in paragraph 2 entails a reduction in the amount of the claim, the requested authority shall continue its action to take recovery or precautionary measures, but that action shall be limited to the amount still outstanding.

 

If, at the time when the requested authority is informed of the reduction in the amount of the claim, an amount exceeding the amount still outstanding has already been recovered by it but the transfer procedure referred to in Article 23 has not yet been initiated, the requested authority shall repay the amount overpaid to the person entitled thereto.

 

5.   If the adjustment referred to in paragraph 2 entails an increase in the amount of the claim, the applicant authority may address to the requested authority an additional request for recovery or for precautionary measures.

 

That additional request shall, as far as possible, be dealt with by the requested authority at the same time as the initial request from the applicant authority. Where, in view of the state of progress of the existing procedure, consolidation of the additional request with the initial request is not possible, the requested authority shall comply with the additional request only if it concerns an amount not less than that referred to in Article 18(3) of Directive 2010/24/EU.

 

6.      In order to convert the amount of the claim resulting from the adjustment referred to in paragraph 2 into the currency of the Member State of the requested authority, the applicant authority shall use the exchange rate used in its initial request.

 

Article 23

 

1.      The amounts that have to be remitted to the applicant authority, in accordance with Article 13(5) of Directive 2010/24/EU, shall be transferred to the applicant authority in the currency of the requested Member State.

 

The transfer of the recovered amounts shall take place within 2 months of the date on which recovery was effected.

 

However, if recovery measures applied by the requested authority are contested for a reason not falling within the responsibility of the applicant Member State, the requested authority may wait to transfer any sums recovered in relation to the applicant Member State’s claim, until the dispute is settled, if the following conditions are simultaneously fulfilled:

 

(a)     the requested authority finds it likely that the outcome of this contestation will be favorable to the party concerned, and

 

 

 

(b)     the applicant authority has not declared that it will reimburse the sums already transferred if the outcome of that contestation is favorable to the party concerned.

 

If the applicant authority has made a declaration to reimburse in accordance with point (b) of the third subparagraph, it shall return the recovered amounts already transferred by the requested authority within 1 month of the receipt of the request for reimbursement. Any other compensation due shall, in that case, be borne solely by the requested authority.

 

2.      The competent authorities of the Member States may agree on different arrangements for the transfer of amounts below the threshold applied in accordance with Article 18(3) of Directive 2010/24/EU.

 

Article 24

 

Regardless of any amounts collected by the requested authority by way of the interest referred to in Article 13(4) of Directive 2010/24/EU, a claim shall be deemed recovered in proportion to the recovery of the amount expressed in the national currency of the Member State of the requested authority, on the basis of the exchange rate referred to in Article 18(2) of this Regulation.
