Postal services from VAT

On 21 April 2015, the CJEU decided in the infringement case C-114/14, Commission v. Sweden, that Sweden has to exempt public postal services from VAT. The country had refused to do so, arguing that a public postal services no longer exists in Sweden since the liberalisation of the sector in the 1990s and that a VAT exemption of one service provider only would give this provider an advantage over its competitors.
