Changes in EU VAT rules and what it means to Cart66 Cloud users

On the 1st of January 2015, the VAT place of supply rules changed. This has huge consequences to all businesses that sell digital products to other countries within the EC. The change in law is being introduced to close a tax loophole that currently enables multinational web giants like Amazon, Google and Apple to charge lower rates of sales tax by basing operations in European countries such as Luxembourg, where rates are among the lowest in the European Union.

Consumers living in the EU must now pay VAT on digital goods at the rate applicable in their own country. This rule applies regardless of where the seller is located. That means if you are selling digital goods to customers in the EU, you should charge VAT based on your customers’ locations. It’s your responsibility to make sure that you comply fully with tax laws wherever your business operates. It’s very important that you familiarize yourself with EU VAT rules as they apply to you.
