Comments on ECJ C-641/21: How is the place of supply of a service assessed in case of VAT fraud?

In an answer to a preliminary question, the CJEU decided that the provisions of the Directive on the common system of value added tax prevent the authorities of a Member State from considering that the place of provision of a service is in the Member State of the service provider, even if would prove a fraudulent intention to change the place of service provision. The only fiscally competent state from a VAT perspective remains the one in which the recipient of the service is established.
