European Commission consultation regarding the approach of ViDA reforms
The VAT in the Digital Age Proposal (ViDA) has referred to the common European standard on e-invoicing (also known as EN16931) and advocated it as a necessary medium of data exchange between businesses. This common standard is contained within the e-invoicing Directive 2014/55/EU and defines invoice contents, format and language. The ViDA proposal, however, would extend the e-invoicing standard with the intra-community supply of goods and services. The European Commission currently is holding a consultation of this respective Directive which commenced on 17 March 2023 and will end on 14 April 2023.
