Around 150 billion EUR of VAT missing in public budgets annually is the reason why European policy makers keep trying to find a more efficient system of VAT collection. A proposal known as the VAT Action Plan suggesting the new VAT treatment of intra-community supplies of goods within the EU was released by the Commission in April 2016. In October 2017, more concrete plans for the VAT reform were launched. First changes should be valid from 2019 and the completely new system for intra-EU supplies is planned to be implemented from 2022.

VAT forum at the University of Economics, Prague is the place for discussion of the impact of the new rules on European businesses and tax administrations. If you are interested how the future VAT will look like, join the conference!

Venue: University of Economics, W. Churchill Sq. 1938/4, Prague 3.
