We prepared an overview of the countries in Europe that have or will have SAF-T requirements implemented in their national VAT Law. The SAF-T requirements or set-up may differ, but in all cases the requirements oblige businesses to collect and produce data on their transactions and activities and actively share this (real-time) with the local tax authorities.
Main developments in 2021 & later:
- Romania will implement SAF-T per Jan 1, 2022
- The Norwegian VAT return will be based on SAF-T variant also per Jan 1, 2022
- Hungary finished a public consultation, expectation is that SAF-T will be introduced in the course of 2022
