VAT & Fixed Establishment (FE)
The online course on FE, is organised by VAT Forum, an international partnership of indirect tax specialists based in Belgium and will provide a conceptual framework through which the Fixed Establishment concept can be examined.
Alexis will outline the history of the FE concept and the historic construction of the definition from the European Court of Justice (ECJ). He will then analyse the attributes of the FE and how one should be thinking about this concept, including a critical evaluation of recent ECJ cases. He will also talk about the impact of the FE on the place of services rules and the place of supply of goods rules.

Recent ECJ cases – An Overview of their Practical Impact
At the 21st Annual VAT Summit, which is also organised by the VAT Forum, Alexis will review the most important recent judgments of the ECJ and provide a technical update. He will also examine where the ECJ has followed its previous decisions, and where it is seeking to broaden or reduce the application of the VAT Directive.
The VAT Summit aims at creating an open discussion between VAT managers within companies, consultants, officials from national VAT authorities and the European Commission (EC). It also aims at discussing hot topics, providing ready-made answers for businesses and informing companies and consultants of the latest changes to EC and national VAT legislation and the impact of those changes on businesses.
