Proposal for modernised VAT law
As well as reducing VAT gaps, multiple countries deploy new fiscal processes as a means to simplify the VAT process, relieving taxpayers of cumbersome duties. This has also been one of the key objectives of the VAT in the Digital Age (ViDA) proposal, which aims to digitise the VAT process. You can read further about the proposal on our recent post here. Individual countries have a similar motivation for reviewing their fiscal practices- with Sweden being no exception. Sweden is advocating a reform of its VAT law as we know it today, with the specific intention that VAT regulations can be better assimilated by taxpayers and understood more easily. The overhaul would also ensure better alignment with content in EU VAT Directive. The changes are extensive, but a notable change is the proposal of VAT exemptions on internal services. Sweden is a compliant territory for Tungsten Network, and we will monitor e-invoicing developments in the country.
