HMRC has published further guidance on the deduction of VAT on defined benefit pension fund management costs in Revenue & Customs Brief 17/15. In Hedqvist, the CJEU has held that the virtual currency bitcoin should receive the same VAT treatment as transactions in traditional currencies. The European Commission has published a public consultation to help identify ways to simplify VAT payments on cross-border e-commerce transactions in the EU.
