However the publication of the implementation in the national law in Poland shows that VAT relevant transactions will have to be reported as well.

One can always cheat

I have never really liked beer, but I didn’t want to be stand-offish right from the beginning and when Dani ordered five beers, I didn’t object. Continue reading

Luxembourg – VAT of 17% due on activity performed by directors as from 1 of January 2017


flag-of-luxembourgThe Circular 781 was published by the Tax Authorities week ago. The Circular confirms that directors’ services will be taxable in Luxembourg in case when:

The director is established in Luxembourg and supplies services to companies established in Luxembourg and / or to non-VAT taxable companies established outside Luxembourg;

The director is established abroad and supplies services to VAT taxable companies established in Luxembourg, regardless of the VAT obligations of the director in his country of establishment, in which case VAT has to be self assessed in Luxembourg by the recipients of the services under the reverse charge mechanism.

A number of questions remains open.
