Key points raised

  • PostEurop and its Members welcome and support the objectives pursued by the VAT in the Digital Age package , that should lead to a more advanced level of standardisation and harmonisation of e-invoicing and digital reporting, combat fraud and reducing administrative burden on businesses and suppliers.
  • The proposal to amend the Directive 2006/112/EU is an important step to overcome the fragmentation of the VAT reporting requirements and of the e-invoicing requirements in the EU. Nevertheless, the proposal also leads to a number of challenges and raises questions that PostEurop would like to address.
  • The position paper focuses mainly on the introduction of an EU digital reporting requirement. A further comment is made in connection with a proposed change within the Import One Stop Shop.
