The VIDA package of proposals published at the end of 2022 is proposing changes to VAT legislation addressing three pillars: Digital Reporting Requirements, Platforms (selling Short-term Accommodation rental and Passenger Transport services) and Single VAT Registration. The panellists will discuss select aspects of the proposals and their the possible implications. This session will open the discussion, amongst VAT practitioners, to the proposals which are currently being discussed at EU level and allow a sharing of ideas and perspectives.
