VATupdate Newsletter Week 24 2021

Here it is again: your weekly VATupdate Newsletter. With 1 July 2021 getting nearer, we see a lot of news on the new EU e-commerce rules. But there’s much more.

We experienced some issues with accessing websites earlier this week. This seems to have been caused by a malfunction at the American cloud service provider. We hope that you haven’t had any trouble reaching our website. The websites of tax authorities were also hard to reach, which didn’t help in trying to register or submit tax returns. If you had any problems, you may want to check if their websites work again.

Access to the internet seems to be a necessity nowadays, and I believe that it’s even described as a first need and a human right. At least in Tanzania they understood that very well, and therefore they decided to no longer charge VAT on the supply of mobile phones, in order to ensure that people can more easily get access to online services and information.

In California, USA, a bill was presented which must clarify how much of the (local) sales tax actually remains in the local country, city or state. The background of this is that often the local sales tax that is paid on online purchases, may be paid by the online retailers in another city, country or state (where they are based).

Which brings us back to the EU VAT E-commerce rules. The rules are made to create a level playing field for local and foreign webshops. EU online retailers can use the OSS scheme and non-EU online retailers can use the iOSS scheme. For more information and news on these rules we refer you to the website. But for now we just wish to point out that you will have to act quickly, as 1 July 2021 is only two weeks away.

Have a nice week.
