In this seminar we will be navigating through the complications associated with the VAT treatment of cross-border chain transactions of goods. Based on strategies aimed to cut costs and maximise competitiveness businesses often engage in transactions where the goods can change hands multiple times, crossing Member State boundaries. The different interpretations in the Member States on the VAT treatment of such chain transactions has fuelled uncertainty for businesses to the extent that a Commission proposal to amend the VAT Directive, the so-called “Quick Fixes” has been taken on board coming into force in January 2020.
The seminar is particularly suitable for professionals, tax advisors and practitioners who offer or intend to offer advisory and consultancy services to businesses involved in chain transactions. It can also be useful for students who are pursuing studies in accountancy and specialisation in VAT.
Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of VAT.
