HOW TO TREAT VAT WHEN DEFINING “MAJOR PROJECT” UNDER OPE

The European Commission says that when defining a major project under OP Environment the common project amount is compared with the limits set in Art. 39 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 (25 blln. euro for project in sector "environment"). The common amount is calculated including VAT, regardless of the fact that VAT is admissible or not admissible for financing under the Operational Programme. For every project submitted under OPE after 02.07.2009 the common project amount is calculated including the inadmissible expenses and VAT.
