Australian Businesses Supplying Electronic, Telecoms And Broadcasting Services To EU Customers Need To Be Aware Of Changes To EU VAT Rules That Apply From 1 January 2015

These changes will apply in relation to the following services (which we have collectively referred to as "e-commerce services"), to the extent the services are supplied to a non-VAT registered consumer:

- telecommunication services;

- television and radio broadcasting services; and

- electronically supplied services (including software subscription services, such as for games, music and other content).
