Who may use the VAT Special Scheme?
The Special Scheme is for business operators who supply telecom, broadcasting and e-services directly to non-business customers, such as consumers, in other EU states.
Additionally, this e-Service is for the VAT taxpayers registered in the VAT special scheme in another EU country for reporting sales, including VAT, made to consumers resident in Åland Islands. The VAT on such sales is paid to Finland directly.
What does the VAT Special Scheme e-service do?
A supplier who has registered for the Special Scheme can use it to declare and pay their VAT liabilities in all EU states via their member state of identification.
The Special Scheme is used on a voluntary basis which means that suppliers may use it if they wish to do so. Suppliers choosing not to use the Special Scheme must register as taxpayers in all EU states where they sell services covered by the scheme to non- business customers.
E-service is back to normal.
