Digitalized businesses are increasingly able to reach markets in jurisdictions where they have no or little presence and the COVID-19 pandemic has been a crucial factor in spiking the interest in e-commerce. While this increased interest should be welcomed and opens up new markets, it is important to take note of the changes in tax rules surrounding e-commerce. While the BEPS 2.0 debate on direct tax issues is ongoing at OECD level, many jurisdictions around the world are also rapidly introducing specific indirect tax (VAT, GST and equivalent) and DST rules to tax digital services and low-value imports of goods from overseas.
One of the key developments are the new rules and regulations surrounding the European Union e-commerce VAT package which will in principle enter into force on 1 July 2021. However, of course no e-commerce session would be complete without touching upon the indirect tax developments in China, the largest e-commerce market in the world.
Please join us for this session, in which we will discuss the indirect tax developments for e-commerce in the EU and China.
