France – Reform of the VAT margin mechanism for works of art

Directive 2022/542 of April 5, 2022 made it impossible to combine a reduced VAT rate on purchase with the application of a margin VAT mechanism on resale. 

France, which until now has allowed a 5.5% VAT rate on the purchase and a VAT margin mechanism on the resale of works of art, is obliged to comply with the European directive by 2025.
