Live webcast: 2015 EU VAT changes to electronically supplied services, telecom and broadcasting: What does it mean for you?

Live webcast: 11:00 (GMT / UK time) Monday, 28 January 2013

Do you sell services to consumers? Are they electronically supplied, telecom or broadcasting services? Are your customers in the EU? Are you investing into the ebusiness, telecom or broadcasting sectors? Are you ready for the B2C EU VAT changes?

In 2015 the EU VAT place of supply rules are changing. B2C telecoms, broadcasting and electronically supplied services will be taxed where your customer is located or belongs. As a result, different VAT rates may apply compared to your current situation impacting your pricing or profit margin.

With no registration threshold for B2C services, businesses will also face multiple VAT obligations in multiple territories and the need to determine where their B2C customers are – and that’s not always straightforward. There are options to manage the position for example, a mini one stop shop registration, but your response to the changes require planning and careful consideration.

Join our live webcast where our panel of indirect tax specialists will take you through the changes, how you can plan for them and what it means for your business:

  • What are the changes?
  • Which services are impacted?
  • Will it affect the customer experience? Pricing? Profit margins? Customer information requests? Data sharing and protection? Payment and billing systems? Accounting and reporting systems?
  • Do you know where your customer is located? Can you prove it?
  • What will you need to do to be ready for the changes?
  • Will your systems need to be reconfigured and tested – is there time in the IT schedule for this?
  • Is it just VAT or will other areas of your business need to be ready?
