Missing Trader Intra-community (MTIC) VAT fraud, also known as 'carousel fraud', involves the repeated import and export of small, high value goods such as computer chips and mobile phones. Companies obtain VAT registration to acquire goods from other Member States without paying VAT. They then sell on the goods at VAT inclusive prices. But the VAT that their customers have already paid is not handed over to the tax authorities.
