European Commission’s Proposed VAT Reform

Host: Daniel Lyons
Presenters: Donato Raponi, Johan Van der Paal, Charlotte Degadt

The European Commission has published its plans for reform of the EU VAT system, intended to improve and modernise the system to combat fraud and make the VAT system easier for companies doing business in the EU. This is the first of two proposals, with the second proposal on details expected in spring 2018. The proposed regime means an overhaul of the intra-Community VAT regime introduced in 1993. How might these proposals affect your organisation?

We'll discuss:

  • The proposed fundamental principles or ‘cornerstones’ for a definitive VAT regime.
  • The four ‘quick fixes’ to come into force by 2019.
  • The concept of a ‘certified taxable person’.
  • What the proposed changes will mean in practice.
  • Our expectations for the further trajectory of the legislative implementation work.
