A Generalized Equivalence Property of Mixed International VAT Regimes
It is shown that the equivalence of a global destination-based and a global origin-based VAT regime can be extended to a class of mixed regimes, where the origin principle is applied for all trade within the European Union and a destination-based, EU-specific border tax adjustment is applied for EU trade with the rest of the world. Such a 'unified restricted origin regime' is superior to the nonreciprocal restricted origin regime proposed by Ben Lockwood, David de Meza and Gareth Myles (1994) since it is the more general VAT regime and offers a higher probability of political acceptance than the latter regime.
