Webinar: Main issues of VAT on e-services

These days, most Russian companies order services provided by foreign contractors, and it is very common for foreign contractors' services to be provided via the internet. Such services are known as e-services. Who pays VAT when services are provided this way? Are foreign counterparts eligible for benefits, and how is VAT charged on these services?

We held the webinar on March 1, 2022 to address the main issues of Russian VAT on e-services provided by foreign suppliers:

  • The concept of e-services: How to determine whether a service is an e- service;
  • Foreign supplier - taxpayer: Obligations, payment procedure, sanctions;
  • Payment of VAT through a tax agent: Can we still do it the old way?
  • Taxation procedure upon provision of both electronic and non-electronic services;
  • Tax payment in individual cases (for example, upon sale of e-services through an intermediary).
