AmCham EU: 2021 VAT e-commerce package - Business needs certainty and transparency

AmCham EU sent a letter to Stephen Quest, Director General of DG TAXUD, requesting greater transparency on the progress of the 2021 VAT e-commerce package and its implementation. This comes following the instruction of the European Council to the European Commission to complete an assessment by the end of 2019 of the EU’s readiness to implement the changes necessary to meet the 1 January 2021 deadline.

Taking into account these proposed changes and the inevitable consequences they will have for business, AmCham EU called for clarity on the following issues:

  • The readiness of EU Member States to implement the Super Reduced Data Set (SRDS);
  • The implementation design for IOSS and Special arrangement procedures and capacity readiness;
  • The functioning of an interface between Express and Postal Services and customs authorities; and
  • Practical information and options on VAT postponed accounting in the Member States.
