The 2020 EU VAT ‘quick fixes’

Speed read
The so-called ‘quick fixes’ are EU wide changes, applied from 1 January, designed to simplify the VAT legislation for EU cross-border supplies of goods. The changes introduce a mandatory VAT ID number requirement for intra-Community supplies and harmonise the VAT legislation for documenting EU cross-border movement of goods, EU cross-border chain transactions and call-off stock legislation. It is hoped that the ‘quick fixes’ will bring some welcome clarity to chain transactions and call-off stock. However, compliance with the new rules will result in many businesses suffering additional costs as a result of new administrative requirements, including potential changes to their systems and procedures.
