Forthcoming Webinar

Save the date for the next IVA webinar:

Date: 26 June 2024 at 16:00 CET

Speakers: Stephen Dale (IVA Board member), Ruth Corkin (IVA Board member) and Fernando Matesanz (IVA Chairman)

Topic: VAT in the Digital Age (VIDA) package

On 8 December 2022, the European Commission published its proposals on the VAT in the Digital Age (VIDA) package.

The proposals are structured around the three parts of the VIDA package as follows:
– Digital Reporting Requirements (DRR);
– VAT treatment of the platform economy;
– Single place of VAT registration in the EU.

The ViDA proposals will bring enormous changes as they affect various aspects of the management of VAT such as invoicing and reporting, the taxation of the platform economy, which is evermore present in our daily lives, and the single place of VAT registration.

After more than a year of deliberations, and on the occasion of the ECOFIN meeting that took place on 14 May 2024, revised proposals were presented. Although the spirit of the proposals has been maintained, significant modifications to the December 2022 proposals have been introduced.

A further attempt at obtaining agreement on the overall (general) approach of the revised directive proposals and political agreement on the content of the draft regulations will take place at the ECOFIN meeting on 21 June 2024.

In the next IVA webinar, we will explain the content of the European Commission’s revised proposals, the status of the negotiation process and the very important impacts that these proposals will have on everyone operating in the VAT world.

The join in details will follow shortly.

Topic: ViDA Update

The ViDA Proposal will bring a revolution in the way VAT will be managed in the coming years.

At the same time, new cases of deemed provisions will arise in the future.
After the publication of the first ViDA proposal and after having given a voice to stakeholders, everything seems to indicate that the initial texts will be subject to modifications.
In the next IVA webinar, we will explain the state of play of the ViDA proposal and the possible future direction it will take.

The Fenix International Case (C 695/20) and the proposed reform of the European Court of Justice

27 April 2023 starting at 16:00 CET

Speakers: Fernando Matesanz, IVA Board member and Stephen Dale, President of the IVA

Topic: The Fenix case and the proposed Reform of the European Court of Justice

On 29 February, the CJEU finally issued its judgment in the Fenix International case (C-695/20). The question raised by the Court tried to ascertain whether Article 9a (1) of the VAT Implementing Regulation (282/2011) may be considered that it is actually extending the scope of Article 28 of the VAT Directive.

The Court decided that article 9a (1) does not exceed its implementing powers and, thus, cannot be considered as invalid. This decision could have a considerable impact on today’s economy, in which carrying out all kinds of activities through the use of digital platforms is something very common.

In our webinar we will explain the content of the case and the consequences it may have.

Moreover, in the second part of the webinar we will explain the content of the request submitted by the Court of Justice with a view to amending Protocol No 3 on the Statute of the CJEU. This request, if it finally proves to be successful, will have an impact on the way the Court will decide VAT cases in the future. We will also explain the work undertaken by the IVA with the Court in this regard.
