Explore the requirements and rules that apply to electronically supplied services in 54 countries around the world, including Bulgaria.
KPMG`s 2017 survey on VAT/GST and cross-border services provides a comprehensive global reference on which businesses can look to build their knowledge and develop further insights into how best to manage indirect taxes in the digital economy.
The rise of the digital economy
Technological changes and improvements have created new challenges for businesses regarding compliance with indirect tax laws and in particular the VAT and GST treatment of cross-border supplies of services. Businesses can supply digital content such as films, music, news, data hosting and storage (e.g. cloud computing), online gaming, telecommunications, payment services and advertising – all supplied remotely. And in the future with developments in technology such as 3-D digital printing, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, the growth in electronic services is expected to be exponential.
VAT and GST changes across the globe
Not surprisingly, governments around the world have been struggling to adapt their VAT and GST systems to meet this challenge. Spurred on by the OECD, this survey looks at how 54 countries around the world have either implemented, or are considering implementing, changes to their VAT and GST systems to recover the tax. The challenges for service providers in implementing these changes is immense, with potentially multijurisdictional tax obligations arising merely by virtue of where their customers are situated around the globe.
