Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations, which come into force on 1st June 1995, further amend the Value Added Tax (General) Regulations 1985 (S.I. 1985/886) (the principal Regulations).
Article 26a D(c) of Council Directive 77/388/EEC (OJ No. L145, 13.6.1977) which was inserted by Article 1 of Council Directive 94/5/EC (OJ No. L60, 3.3.1994) (the Seventh VAT Directive) provides that supplies of goods which are charged to VAT in accordance with any margin scheme introduced by the Seventh VAT Directive, to a person in another member State, must be taxed in the member State of the supplier.
Regulation 57A of the principal Regulations zero rates supplies of goods to persons taxable in another member State where certain conditions are met. Regulation 3 amends regulation 57A of the principal Regulations so as to exclude the supply of such goods from zero rating when supplied under a margin scheme.
Regulation 57B of the principal Regulations zero rates supplies of goods subject to excise duty to persons who are not taxable in another member State where certain conditions are met. Regulation 4 amends regulation 57B of the principal Regulations so as to exclude the supply of such goods from zero rating when supplied under a margin scheme.
