VATupdate

VATupdate Newsletter week 29+30 2021

Due to the vacation time, this week’s newsletter is in fact a one-and-a-half week’s newsletter. And for next week we will do the same. After that, it’s back to a newsletter every week.

Not that there isn’t much news to share, by the way. Because we will always find you the latest news and updates on VAT rules from around the world.

Special this week is an overview of all VAT developments in Portugal. We will try and share more of these country specials in the future. If you have any preference for a specific country, or if you want to contribute for a specific country, please let us know. Our contributors network is still growing, and we are considering different ways forward with this, including monthly calls, but also events or meetings (if conditions allow).

We collect quite some news via LinkedIn and Twitter, and this week there was an interesting article about one of my favourite topics that I like to talk about during birthday parties and BBQ’s: VAT rates on sports. Bridge isn’t a sport, according to the ECJ. And the VAT rate for tennis lessons is the standard rate. But for kite surfing lessons it’s the reduced rate. And horse-riding in the dunes is also reduced rated. And from there we can discuss the VAT rate for festivals (reduced rate) and the parking at ‘events'(such as festivals (standard rated according to the Court, but certainly disputable, e.g. because parking at a camping site is reduced rated).

I hope you all have a good summer, with lots of interesting VAT discussions. Please share them with us via [email protected] (we don’t have an Instagram account yet…).

Stay safe!
