VAT - New VAT Rules on Services
New Value Added Tax (VAT) rules related to services have gone in effect 2010 in the European Union. North American companies should immediately assess how the new rules might affect their business.
The new European VAT rules that took effect in 2010 made significant changes on "place of supply" of services to businesses (B2B) and consumers (B2C), regulations for cross-border VAT refunds, the administrative cooperation, and the exchange of information between EU Member States. These new rules will affect North American companies that sell or purchase services in Europe, and can result in tremendous savings on their business expenses over previous years. Individual EU countries are able to interpret and apply the new rules differently regarding how some services performed are treated from a VAT point of view in their respective countries. It is extremely important to get these facts before the transactions take place.
