Taxation Committee Update


The European Commission is currently reviewing the Energy Taxation Directive that it withdrew in 2015 (as the file was blocked in Council). The Commission will probably publish a revised Energy Taxation Directive after the EU elections and the installation of the new Commission in November 2019. UEIL hopes that, through a revised Energy Taxation Directive under the new European Commission, a real level playing field can be achieved for the lubricants market in Europe.

Related to UEIL’s objective to prevent the inclusion of lubes under EMCS, UEIL will continue its outreach to the fiscal attachés of the Permanent Representations of the EU Member States in the coming weeks, as the pressure from Member States to include lubes under EMCS is increasing.
