EC publishes explanatory notes on the EU VAT Ecommerce Package

On 30 September 2020, the European Commission published Explanatory Notes on the new VAT ecommerce rules. These rules come into force on 1 July 2021, simplifying VAT obligations for companies carrying out cross-border sales of goods or services (mainly online) to end consumers, and ensuring that the VAT on these sales is paid correctly to the Member State in which the supply takes place.

The notes contain in-depth explanations and clarifications, including practical examples for suppliers or electronic interfaces (e.g. marketplace, platform) involved in ecommerce transactions, demonstrating how to apply the rules. The explanatory notes are intended to help online businesses, in particular SMEs, to understand their VAT obligations arising from cross-border deliveries to EU consumers.
