On 1 July new VAT settlement rules come into effect in the European Union in connection with the implementation of the VAT e-commerce package. The changes particularly affect taxpayers selling goods to consumers in other EU member states, and the new rules will affect a much larger number of entities making cross-border B2C transactions than the current distance selling.

Where are we? When and how will the e-commerce VAT package be introduced into the Polish legal system? Why does it affect most taxpayers, not only those who sell by postal services?

Our meeting was organised by Konfederacja Lewiatan, MDDP and Izba Gospodarki Elektronicznej with the participation of a representative of the Ministry of Finance and the European Commission, during which we discussed the assumptions of the new regulations and the most important aspects related to preparing for their application.

The meeting was held in English and Polish.

If you have any questions or concerns about the new VAT rules in connection with the implementation of the VAT e-commerce package, feel free to ask us a question or share your doubts! We will clarify the issues raised by you during the conference.


The meeting was opened by Przemysław Pruszyński, expert from the Konfederacja Lewiatan.
