Throughout the Union, the Commission estimates that nearly 160 billion euros was lost from failure to fully collect VAT remittances.

The Commission’s study says the Greek state should have collected around 17.6 euros in 2014 from value added taxes, instead it collected 12.7 billion euros, or a 28-percent loss.
