The General Rapporteur of the Autorité de la concurrence indicates that unannounced inspections have been carried out in the VAT refund services sector.

Following authorisation from the liberty and custody judge, the investigation services of the Autorité de la concurrence have raided yesterday the premises of companies suspected of having engaged in possible anticompetitive practices in the VAT refund services sector.

Such interventions do not, of course, pre-suppose the existence of a breach of the law which could be imputed to the companies involved in the alleged practices, which only a full investigation into the merits of the case could establish, if appropriate.
