EU VAT: Are you ready?

If you supply electronic services to consumers, you now have to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) in the country where your customer resides.

If you supply electronic services to consumers, you now have to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) in the country where your customer resides. To do this, you either have to register for VAT in the European Union (EU) country where your customer is based or register to use the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) service in the UK.

Is this relevant to me?

Developers selling things like mobile apps, eBooks, music and those offering certain paid-for video downloads through their own online platform will all be affected. Vendors trading through the Apple or Google Play stores should be okay to continue without any changes but we still recommend talking it through with an expert.

What should you do?

The rules changed on 1 January 2015, so if you are affected and haven’t registered for MOSS/VAT, you should do so immediately. The rules are now in effect and the first MOSS return will be due in April 2015 (other member states will have different return periods which could be sooner).

If you don’t charge each consumer correctly, you may become liable to penalties and prosecution.
