New EU rules on VAT as of 2021

Posted on


The hurdles to register in another EU country will as of 2021 be over with the One-Stop-Shop system or maybe not, read on to learn moe about the changes


A company than deals with VAT in its own country and in his own language. Please note that this will for B2C only. The B2B option will be valid as of 2022.

So this will be the end of all foreign registrations. No; as soon as the company delivers from another country as where it is based VAT will be processed from this country, when using an fulfilment centre in another EU country VAT will be obligated in that country. uw btw specialist


This sounds like a good deal doesn’t it? Well only for those who use the distance sales rule and sell out of their home country. For all those companies using in time fulfilment structures and ship their product out of other countries still have to deal with local tax offices and tax rules. And that is not all! As of 2021 all the different distance sales thresholds will disappear into one threshold of €10.000

Crossing over this EU threshold with all cross border sales to end user within the EU every sale over that threshold has to be taxed in that state where the shipment ends. Which will have to follow through the One Stop Shop.

Using foreign warehouses has direct effect on two kinds of transactions which at this moment cannot be dealt with through the One-Stop-Shop being: domestic supplies to end users in the country of the warehouse and inner community purchases when shipping goods from your home country to the foreign FBA warehouse.


Next point is, E-platforms will be responsible for VAT from third country online sellers as of 2021. As of 2021 a fictive supply chain will be in place; the seller from a third country supplies to the e-platform, the platform supplies the customer. When the customer pays the platform will pay the vat.

So the E-platforms will be held liable for not paid vat to the tax office when they don’t hold a certificate of registration from this company at the tax office. This is already in place in Germany and will come in effect in 2019.

EU VAT system proposed changes

Posted on

The European Commission has now published proposals for the detailed technical amendments that will accompany the overall plan to make the VAT system more fraud-resilient.

In the October proposal, the Commission proposed the main principles for the creation of a single EU VAT area which would help to shut down the estimated €50 billion in fraud currently affecting national budgets annually in EU Member States.

With the proposal of these technical measures, the Commission hopes that Member States will initiate discussions on the broader principles or ‘cornerstones’ of a simpler and resilient definitive EU VAT system for the trade in goods within the EU.

These four cornerstones are:

– Simplification of how goods are taxed

– Creation of a single online portal (‘One Stop Shop’) for traders

– Reduced administrative burden

– Making the seller responsible for VAT collection in most cases

You can read the full press release here.

Pierre Moscovici, Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs, said that “the proposals we are presenting today represent the final building blocks in the overhaul of the EU’s VAT system. They will open the way to simpler rules, less red tape and a more user-friendly system, thanks to the online one-stop shop for traders.”

Hongarije real-time factuurgegevensrapportage

Posted on

Wat u moet weten over real-time factuurgegevensrapportage in Hongarije

Vanaf 1 juli 2018 zijn btw-betalers in Hongarije verplicht om de Hongaarse financiële administratiehierover te informeren op het moment dat het belastingdocument wordt uitgegeven . Dit is een zogenaamde real-time factuurgegevensrapportage of ook “online számla rendszer”. omzetbelasting in de gehele EU

Wanneer en voor wie is de verplichting om real-time factuurgegevens te rapporteren?

  • de verplichting om gegevens over het uitgegeven belastingdocument online te melden heeft betrekking op alle Hongaarse btw-betalers, dwz zowel binnenlandse als buitenlandse belastingbetalers
  • zij rapporteren alleen gegevens over verkoopdocumenten (niet over aankoop, export, levering aan een andere lidstaat)
  • rapportage heeft alleen betrekking op BtoB-transacties, dwz. alleen documenten die zijn uitgegeven tussen twee Hongaarse btw-betalers
  • de verplichting ontstaat wanneer de waarde van de btw op het uitgegeven belastingdocument gelijk is aan of groter is dan HUF 100.000 (ongeveer € 340); de financiële administratie stuurt geen informatie over btw-vrijgestelde of belastingvrije transacties

Wat zijn de voorwaarden voor rapportage van real-time factuurgegevens?

  • factureringssoftware moet gereed zijn voor onmiddellijke online rapportage zonder enige handmatige tussenkomst
  • Rapportage gebeurt alleen elektronisch via de webinterface van de Hongaarse belastingadministratie in een vast XML-formaat
  • de correctie van de onjuist uitgegeven documenten vindt plaats binnen 72 uur na afgifte van het document
  • in het geval van een technische storing, is het mogelijk om gegevens binnen 48 uur handmatig te rapporteren
  • de verplichting van real-time rapportage komt niet in de plaats van de voorheen verplichte rapportage van uitgegeven belastingdocumenten in het XML-formaat volgens de nummerreeks of voor een bepaalde periode (verplichting vanaf 1 januari 2016)
  • onjuiste of ontbrekende rapportage kan worden bestraft tot HUF 500.000 (ongeveer € 1.700) per document

Als het belastingdocument niet elektronisch wordt verstrekt, is het mogelijk om een ​​belastingdocument in Hongarije af te geven op de officiële voorgedrukte formulieren die voor dat doel zijn verstrekt.

Deze documenten zijn ook onderworpen aan rapportage:

  • binnen 5 kalenderdagen als de waarde van de BTW tussen HUF 100.000 en HUF 500.000 ligt
  • binnen 1 kalenderdag als de waarde van de btw hoger is dan 500.000 HUF


Voor binnenlandse e-shops moet worden opgemerkt dat de verplichting niet geldt bij verzending naar eindklanten. Voor betalers die contant verkopen, is de verplichting om contante ontvangsten te registreren nog steeds van toepassing.
