How the new One-Stop Shop EU VAT rules affect e-commerce

The impacts on tax compliance, sales channels, and the bottom line

The European Union’s new value-added tax (VAT) regulations, and its creation of the One-Stop Shop, significantly impact the way companies calculate, collect, declare, and pay the VAT due on e-commerce sales in the 27 EU member states.

The new reforms are multi-faceted, nuanced, and affect business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce companies and marketplaces of all sizes, inside and outside the EU, as well as postal operators and couriers, customs and tax administrators, and consumers.

The European Commission enacted the regime to simplify VAT reporting and processing for companies, but early signs suggest many businesses were not prepared when the new requirements went into effect in the summer of 2021.
