As explained in the EC release, the VAT consultation will be part of the ongoing assessment of the new rules for VAT payments on cross-border telecommunications, broadcasting and electronic services that were effective in January 2015. The EC also is seeking feedback on the “mini-one stop shop” tool that allows businesses that sell digital services to customers in more than one EU country to declare and pay all their VAT in their own EU Member State.

The consultation will run for 12 weeks and end on 18 December 2015.
