Understanding the impact of COVID, Brexit and IOSS

This year has been one like no other. Businesses have faced a triple header, with some of the biggest challenges in history including Brexit and the new UK & EU VAT reforms.

Now as governments look to recoup the budget, and VAT rate changes begin to return to normal following a number of emergency changes to lessen the business impact of COVID, we discuss what the impact of all these things have been on businesses trading across the UK and Europe.

Join Matt Harrison and Reece Duncan from Avalara, as they look back at the impact of some of the year's biggest indirect tax changes, plus look ahead to the upcoming VAT measures that will be coming into place in the next few years.
