An all-star panel of VAT experts is now delivering a high-level seminar on the VAT Place of Supply of Services before a packed room at the St. Raphael Resort in Limassol. The full day seminar is organised by the Chelco VAT International Academy.
The panel, made up of renowned VAT experts, Prof. Dr. David Hummel, Raymond Feen and the Academy’s Lead Instructor, Alexis Tsielepis, are analysing the VAT Directive articles and ECJ decisions that make up the current Place of Supply Rules and are presenting upcoming developments on the subject.
The star speakers are explaining that through 19 articles, the VAT Directive dictates for the provision of services where VAT should be paid, by laying down 17 rules in black and white, with an optional “use-and-enjoyment” provision being the joker card! Understanding the rules however is not always an easy task. The precise nature of the service, the status of the customer (B2B or B2C) and naturally the interpretation of the provisions have transformed what was dubbed in 2010 as a simplification of the place of supply rules, into a minefield through which one should proceed vigilantly!
Next up on the Academy’s academic calendar is a half-day seminar on the Basics of VAT on 25 November 2022, to be delivered by Panayiotis Panayi in Greek.
