VAT and digital services

HMRC have issued some additional guidance for small businesses which supply digital services to consumers in other EU Member States.

The guidance advises:

  • how to comply with new VAT rules on the place of supply of digital services that came into force on 1 January 2015
  • how to register for HMRC’s VAT Mini-One Stop Shop (MOSS) and still benefit from the UK’s VAT registration threshold for sales to UK consumers.

On 1 January 2015, the VAT rules for cross-border Business to Consumer supplies of ‘digital services’ (for example broadcasting, telecoms and e-services) changed. Broadly from that date, VAT must be accounted for in the Member State where the consumer normally is, rather than where the supplier of the service is established.

HMRC have also issued more general guidance on the change to all businesses which can be found here
