Questions referred

1.

How is the expression ‘fixed establishment from which business transactions are effected’ to be interpreted in an assessment on the basis of the relevant provisions of European Union law? (1)

2.

Is a taxable person who has the seat of his economic activity in another Member State and whose activity principally consists of the manufacture and sale of cars, who has carried out winter testing of car models at installations in Sweden, to be regarded as having had a fixed establishment in Sweden from which business transactions have been effected where that person has acquired goods and services that were received and used at testing installations in Sweden without having his own staff permanently stationed in Sweden and where the testing activity is necessary to the performance of the person’s economic activity in another Member State?

3.

Does it affect the answer to question 2 if the taxable person has a wholly-owned Swedish subsidiary, the purpose of which is almost exclusively to supply the person with various services for that testing activity?
