In the March 2006 issue of Tax Adviser the authors commented on the opinion that the Advocate General gave in EMAG Handel Eder OHG v Finanzlandesdirektion fur Kartnen Berufungssenat II. The EMAG case considers a question relating to a 'chain transaction', an increasingly common occurrence in intra-community trade, and explores which transactions in the chain can be effectively 'zero-rated' as an intra-community dispatch.

The ECJ has now handed down its judgment. This arrives at the same conclusion as the AG, but applies a slightly difference approach in getting there. This article summarises the ECJ's conclusions and also touches on some of the practical considerations and opportunities for business that may arise as a result of the decision.
