ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs on management services and businesses in Europe as of September 2003. HM Customs and Excise have announced several cross-border value-added tax (VAT) changes, one of which changes the place of supply rules to comply with the electronic commerce directive. This makes non European Union-suppliers of software to European Union-based customers register for and charge VAT. Allegations of internal corruption and false presentation at Eurostat, the European Union statistical office, has surfaced. The European Commission has conducted its own internal investigations into the alleged misconduct at Eurostat. The European Commission has approved a British aid scheme to clean up contaminated sites and derelict land. The Support for Land Remediation scheme puts cash into renovating land formerly not suitable for development. A pan-European campaign has been launched by the European Commission to help small and medium-sized enterprises take advantage of European Union enlargement business opportunities. A draft Directive, now approved, aims to clarify consumers' rights and simplify cross-border trade in the region. It addresses unfair business-to-consumer practices to give consumers the same protection.
