Member states cannot make tax reduction dependent on proof of unsuccessful insolvency proceedings

Re: Enzo Di Maura v Agenzia delle Entrate – Direzione Provinciale di Siracusa (Case C-246/16)

This case concerned the conditions applied for reductions in the taxable amount in cases of bad debts and whether these were compatible with the principles of proportionality and effectiveness of EU law.

CJEU decided that a member state could not make the reduction depend on proof of unsuccessful insolvency proceedings when such proceedings could last longer than ten years.

Eleni Mitrophanous was involved in this case.
