Commission calls on Germany to comply with EU VAT rules on private tuition services

  • The European Commission has called on Germany to comply with EU VAT rules regarding private tuition services.
  • Germany is not properly applying EU rules on exempting private tuition services from VAT.
  • The VAT Directive requires Member States to exempt private tuition covering school or university education.
  • Germany requires private teachers to present a certificate for the VAT exemption to apply, which does not comply with EU law.
  • Germany has two months to respond and take necessary measures, otherwise the case may be referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union.
