Fiscal policy

Taxation is a very important topic for construction craftsmen and SMEs. It has a significant influence on the demand for construction works, which is why EBC is a strong promoter of reduced VAT rates for construction works – an ongoing priority for EBC member organisations. Taxes can also involve high administrative burdens for SMEs and crafts, which is why EBC advocates to further reduce red tape in this field and prevent an unequal level playing field between enterprises.
