Current Issues in European VAT

Overview and Learning Objectives

The VAT system of the European Union has been undergoing a major change over the last few years, which transformation seriously challenges multinationals operating within the European Union or trading with EU firms and selling products/services to EU customers. Under the umbrella of the 2016 Action Plan on VAT [h1] (Towards a single EU VAT area – Time to decide and Time to act), the European Union tabled several new Council Directives aimed to remove obstacles to e-commerce, tackle the VAT gap, develop the definitive VAT regime and modernize VAT rates. The implications for businesses are many, far reaching and complex. This course will help participants to contemplate, interpret and prepare for the changes in an easy and practical manner. Topics to be discussed include both B2C and B2B aspects such as:

  • The future of MOSS and OSS concerning e-commerce B2C transactions, distance sales, goods and services
  • How to utilize the new quick fixes (call-of stock, chain transactions, VAT identification numbers and proof of transport)
  • What does the definitive VAT system mean for EU and non-EU businesses?
  • Quick update on VAT rates
  • New possible generalized reverse charge mechanism 
  • Special scheme for small enterprises

The course will also dedicate some time to Brexit to assist participants in their preparation for when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. Instructors will summarize the outcome of the by then closed negotiations between the UK and the EU with a special focus on the withdrawal agreement, and look at the VAT/customs consequences of all possible scenarios for EU, UK and third-country businesses (e.g. the UK stays part of the EU; the UK exits the EU without a deal and becomes a third country; the UK becomes part of the EU Customs Union).
