Tax & VAT Group - New EU-VAT Rules for E-Commerce and Distance Sales as of 1st July 2021

Join us for the next session of our Tax & VAT Working Group.

Tuesday, 8 June 2021
12.00pm – 1.30pm CEST on Zoom

Topic: New EU-VAT Rules for E-commerce and distance sales per 1st July 2021


As of 1st July 2021, the new E-commerce Directive will be effective in all EU countries.
The new rules regarding distance sales, the obligations imposed on electronic interfaces, the extension of the current EU and non-EU One-Stop-Shop (OSS) schemes as well as the introduction of new Import One stop Shop (IOSS) are challenging for businesses and their advisers.

We will review those rules and check the status of their implementation in selected EU-Members States as well as possible variations in the implementation and interpretation by local tax administrations.

The session will tackle the following key questions:

  • What are the new rules for the taxation of distance sales (definition, place of supply)?
  • What are the new rules for sales facilitated by electronic interfaces (marketplace, platform, portal, etc.)
  • What are the changes to the EU-OSS scheme?
  • How does the new IOSS work?
  • What about the new carrier-special arrangement?
  • cast studies / examples
