Introduction of general reverse charge as from 2020 probable

The Czech Republic has applied for the introduction of a generalised reverse charge system, which will apply to all supplies of goods and services in the Czech Republic worth over 17,500 euros (approx. 450,000 CZK). In such cases, the obligation to declare VAT will automatically be shifted from the supplier to the customer. The possibility of introducing this measure in local legislation is subject to compliance with the entry criteria stated in the Council Directive and to the final approval of the EU Council. If the Czech application is approved, the MoF estimates that changes to the Czech VAT Act will be effective starting from 1 July 2020 and lasting until June 2022.
