Re:

Reference for a preliminary ruling — Curtea de Apel București — Interpretation of Articles 167, 168 and 185(2) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax (OJ 2006 L 347, p. 1) — Right of deduction in respect of the VAT relating to the purchase of buildings scheduled for demolition with a view to carrying out a construction project — Economic activity prior carrying out a construction project, consisting in the initial investment expenditure for the purposes of implementing that project — Adjustment of the VAT deductions

Operative part of the judgment

1.

Articles 167 and 168 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax must be interpreted as meaning that, in circumstances such as those in the main proceedings, a company which has acquired land and buildings constructed on that land, for the purpose of demolishing the buildings and developing a residential complex on the land, has the right to deduct the value added tax relating to the acquisition of those buildings.

2.

Article 185 of Directive 2006/112 must be interpreted as meaning that, in circumstances such as those in the main proceedings, the demolition of buildings, acquired together with the plot of land on which they were constructed, which is carried out with a view to developing a residential complex in place of those buildings does not result in an obligation to adjust the initial deduction of the value added tax relating to the acquisition of those buildings.
