Alert the OECD to the EU Digital VAT catastrophe

This week and next will see a series of online initiatives from the EU VAT Action​ team.

To start with, we want to alert the OECD to the EU Digital VAT catastrophe. At the moment, they are looking at international VAT/GST guidelines and the public consultation period runs until 20th February.

This is a hugely important opportunity for everyone to voice concerns over the ways in which start-ups and small businesses are being wrecked by the new EU regulations on VAT payable on cross-border digital sales.

It is particularly significant for those in OECD member countries outside the EU such as the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. This is the best way to make your voice heard on this matter.

Here’s the EU VAT Action website’s blogpost with full details, including links to detailed guidelines to help you prepare submissions.

Once you have sent your submission, please tweet to let us know and to help encourage other people to do the same, using the #EUVAT and #VATMOSS hashtags. Spread the word about this opportunity for positive action through your other business and social networks!
