Our hosts

Our hosts VAT Expert and Global VAT Specialist Group members, Florian Hanslik from PrimeTax AG based in Zurich, Switzerland and Koen Dewilde from Vatsquare CVBA based in Brussels, Belgium are both specialised in national and international indirect taxation (VAT and customs) for over 20 years.

For those working with clients or businesses that are trading goods within the EU then this webinar is for you.  From 1 January 2020, member states will be required to adopt four 'Quick Fixes' to their VAT rules in advance of the implementation of the Action Plan. These are designed to provide a level of consistency and simplification to VAT rules where goods are traded across the EU.

This webinar highlighted important changes that will have considerable impact on businesses trading within the EU and internationally, including:

EU VAT quick fixes to simplify international trade

  • Overview of the different quick fixes
  • What is the status in the different EU-Member States
  • What practical consequences do these quick fixes have (e.g. on ERP systems, processes, …)
Brexit

  • What has been effectively changed on 1 February 2020
  • What to expect on 1 January 2021 (or 2022)
