News archive - [Document Announcement] UPDATED: Guidelines on VAT Exemption Procedures for EU Funded Projects in the IPA Countries

Following the first Value Added Tax (VAT) Guidelines that were produced in June 2011, this VAT Guidelines is now updated to reflect the changes, if any, in each of the countries. 

The biggest change is seen in Albania, which in June 2011 was not included in the first set of Guidelines because at that time it was not possible to provide adequate guidelines on the VAT procedures in the country. Due to the joint efforts of the Albanian civil society, TACSO Albania and the European Union Delegation (EUD) in Albania, instructions were issued for VAT exemptions that target Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) funded through the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA).

The information within this set of guidelines on VAT Exemption for the IPA countries has been gathered by each TACSO country office and compiled by the TACSO Regional Office. The information is based on each country’s specific requirements in terms of VAT exemption for EU/IPA funded projects.
