The main amendments involve changing the taxation rules for intra-Community transactions carried out by taxable persons.  Consequently, intra-Community supplies of goods will be charged according to the principle of the “destination state”, which means that they will be subject to taxation using the VAT rate applicable in the Member State where the buyer is established, and the supplier will be the entity in charge of collecting and paying the related VAT.
