Decision-making on the Commission proposal “VAT in the digital age” (VIDA) requires unanimity. The VIDA package includes provisions for digital reporting obligations, e-invoicing, platform fiction for short-term accommodation rentals, and single VAT registration.

The Dutch government supports modernizing the VAT system to align with digital economy developments while minimizing administrative burdens. The Netherlands accepts the proposed transition period for aligning domestic reporting systems with the new European digital reporting requirements. The Dutch government emphasizes the importance of harmonization, data security, and sufficient implementation time during negotiations.
