Russia: VAT on the supply of e-services, effective 2017

New law in Russia—effective 1 January 2017—introduces comprehensive value added tax (VAT) rules for the supply of e-services to Russian consumers.

The new rules are aimed at collecting Russian VAT from the sale of e-services at the place of consumption (i.e., in Russia) by requiring foreign suppliers of such services to register for VAT purposes. These new measures have the effect of treating Russian and foreign suppliers of e-services alike.
