Non-Monetary Services: VAT Implications and Client Obligations in Free Services Agreements

  • Some services provided for free may still have a charge for the customer
  • Free services related to the company’s own purposes are not subject to VAT
  • In some cases, a service provided for free may be considered as part of another economic transaction
  • The provision of services without a monetary payment may still be considered as having a reciprocal relationship
  • The presence of a reciprocal relationship may indicate that a service is not actually free and is subject to VAT
