The EU Quick fixes, i.e. measures aiming to improve the current VAT system applicable as of January 2020 will require businesses to adapt their systems and processes. We will therefore share with you the first observations collected from the various EU countries that have already released their draft legislation and discuss the practical implementation and steps required to check the readiness of your company in connection with those new rules.
As usually, we will provide you also with an overview of worldwide developments including practical experiences from recent VAT audits in Switzerland and interesting ITX news from locations, such as Bangladesh, India and China.
Prior the judiciary holidays, we will present the latest impacting cases issued by the ECJ with particular focus on the input VAT deduction right and the points of attention for businesses to secure those rights, particularly, in supply chain transactions.
Finally yet importantly, we will discuss the trade wars and the resulting increased focus on customs as with the increase in rates the duties become more important as ever. Since experience shows that businesses are often lacking the necessary controls in this area, our Customs specialists will share their insights on the future developments and present the solutions that businesses could implement to assess their actual position and identify potential saving opportunities.
