The European Commission estimates that a total of around 150 billion euros losses occur in the Member States currently, due to the missing VAT revenues each year, one-third of it (50 billion) is due to cross-border VAT fraud. The loss of revenue due to the draft may be reduced by up to 80 percent, or by 40 billion euros annually.
