The provisions of Council Directive (EEC) 69-335 concerning indirect taxes on raising of capital, as amended, should not be interpreted as precluding the levy of capital duty upon the conversion of a partnership into a capital company within the meaning of that Directive, where, before entry into force of that Directive, a duty such as that provided for in para 33, item 16(1), point 1(b) of the Austrian Law on Fees 1957 had already been levied on all the capital contributions made for the acquisition of shares in the partnership.
