New VAT rules for e-commerce: 1,2,3…VAT returns?

with No Comments

The new VAT rules for intra-Community trade in goods with European consumers (B2C sales) come into force on 1 July 2021. From this date, all sales will be subject to the VAT of the country of arrival of the goods (there is no longer any threshold applicable except for microenterprises). In order to avoid having to register in all European countries, e-traders will be able to use the One-Stop-Shop (OSS) where they can declare and pay the VAT due in other Member States. A single “European VAT return”, so to speak.
