2015 Legislation

On 01 January 2015, the European Union rules on the calculation of Value Added Taxes (VAT) on broadcasting, telecommunications and e-services are changing. This affects businesses and consumers selling within the EU. It also applies to businesses selling into the EU. The goal of these changes is to improve European VAT compliance and level the playing field for all e-service providers.

2015 EU VAT Directive

VAT on electronic services supplied to consumers will no longer be calculated based on the place the service was supplied from, but rather based on the place in which it is consumed (i.e. where the customer is located). It applies only to B2C transactions.

This new legislation requires impacted businesses to report and pay VAT in any of 28 participating States, depending on where the merchant is located.

An e-service provider can opt for multiple VAT registrations or, alternatively, will be able to account for VAT across the EU via a single electronic declaration under the Mini One Stop Shop Scheme.

Please see the following link for more detail on the EU VAT directive – EU Commission website

The Mini One Stop Shop scheme (MOSS)

The MOSS is an optional scheme which will allow businesses to declare and pay the VAT due in one EU member state, rather than where their customers are located (in the case of EU businesses, this will be the member state where they are established). A e-service supplier who opts to use the scheme will submit quarterly VAT returns electronically to the Member State of Identification, declaring the VAT charged and collected in the EU Member States where the customers are located. The EU VAT payments will be made to that Member State, which will then transmit the funds to the respective EU Member States. This scheme is intended to simplify the EU VAT compliance obligations for operators who would otherwise be required to have multiple VAT registrations.
