EU-Commission modernizes VAT System in Europe! Discuss with us the impact on the intra EU trade.

In October 2017 has the European Commission launched its proposal for one of the largest VAT reform in a quarter of a century. The VAT proposal of the European Commission should improve and modernise the system for governments and businesses and will mainly affect the companies working on a cross-border level.

The main goal of the EU VAT proposal is to tackle cross-border VAT-fraud.

In addition to the major change for intracommunity supplies of goods, the EU commission will introduce the notion of a Certified Taxable Person and implement some quick fixes in order to improve the current VAT system.

    • Consignment stocks
