ECAS Webinar on VAT

03 January 2018

On 7 December, ECAS hosted a webinar with Tim Hayes, Policy Officer at the European Commission’s Directorate General for Taxation and Customs Union to train Your Europe Advice’s legal experts on the latest cross-border VAT issues and the basic VAT rules that apply under EU law.

The webinar started with a presentation covering different topics related to the current European VAT system, such as the taxable person status, the place of taxable transactions, VAT allocation rules, as well as exemptions and the taxable amount. In addition to this, the webinar addressed the rules governing distance sales and shopping on the internet.

The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, during which our legal experts had the chance to obtain further clarifications on the concrete implementation of VAT rules, based on the enquiries submitted by both citizens and businesses to Your Europe Advice.
