The European Union has recently made announcements on the taxation of the digital economy, including indirect tax aspects. In December 2017, the Council of the EU adopted new rules on VAT compliance by online businesses. Earlier this year in March, the European Commission proposed an interim digital services tax (DST), a 3% revenue-based tax on certain digital services. What are the potential consequences of these recent announcements? We’ll discuss:

  • The underlying issues giving rise to the proposals.
  • The proposals to simplify and then extend the Mini One-Stop Shop (MOSS) for online businesses.
  • The proposed parameters of the DST.
  • Timetable and next steps.
