Four people in business-casual attire are an office space, which has big sunny windows. The woman seated closest to the camera is referencing and reaching for a computer in front of her. She is smiling with the three people, slightly out of focus behind her, who are all taking a look at the work in front of her.

While the EU is striving for a more efficient and streamlined VAT system through ViDA (VAT in the Digital Age), the final agreement has been postponed. The negotiations continue into 2024 with a delay to beyond 2030 likely. Across the EU, VAT rules are likely to remain complex making compliance difficult for businesses in numerous ways, for example:  

  • EU-based businesses with operations in multiple member states face the challenge of managing varying VAT rates and reporting requirements  

  • UK businesses must often deal with complex VAT exemptions especially as regulation evolves post-Brexit. These challenges require a keen eye for detail and an up-to-date understanding of VAT requirements 

  • US businesses expanding into European markets face the challenge of integrating their domestic sales tax systems with the VAT requirements of the EU. This can be particularly daunting given the fundamental differences between the two tax systems.
