European Commission requests Finland to change car registration taxation rules.

NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-4 July 2006-European Commission requests Finland to change car registration taxation rules(C)1994-2006 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

The European Commission said on Tuesday (4 July) that it has sent Finland a formal request to amend the country's rules for car registration taxation.

The Commission said that the Finnish rules infringe on the EC Treaty in applying higher registration on imported second-hand cars than on similar Finnish cars. The Commission also objected to Finnish legislation impeding leasing companies established in other countries from offering services to persons resident in Finland.

If the European Commission does not receive what it considers to be satisfactory responses to its formal request, it can bring the case before the European Court of Justice.
