Member States’ VAT Rates per 1 July 2012

taxation/vat/how_vat_works/rates/vat_rates_en.pdf

These tables are based on the framework for VAT set out originally in the 6th Directive and now in the updated 2006/112/EC version, including 2008/8/EC. Member States were required to apply a standard percentage rate of VAT applicable to goods and services.

These tables do not clearify all on specific rates applicable in each country, they merely give a useful pan-EU overview.
