How will the VAT Mini One Stop Shop (VAT MOSS) work?
You may opt to use the VAT Mini One Stop Shop (VAT MOSS) online service to save you having to register for VAT in every EU Member State where you supply digital services. This will be available from 1 January 2015, but you will be able to register to use it from October 2014.
If you are an EU business, you may register and use the VAT Mini One Stop Shop (VAT MOSS) online service in the Member State where you have your business. Using the VAT MOSS online service means you can submit a single calendar quarterly VAT MOSS return and payment covering all your EU digital service supplies. For example, if you register for the VAT MOSS online service in the UK, you will be able to account for the VAT due on your B2C digital service sales in any other Member States where you do not have an establishment by submitting a single VAT MOSS return and any related payment to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). HMRC will send an electronic copy of the appropriate part of your VAT MOSS return, and the related VAT payment, to each relevant Member State’s tax authority on your behalf. The VAT rate used will be that of each Member State of Consumption at the time the service was supplied.
