Chile imposes VAT on foreign electronic services
- Feb 4, 2020 | Richard Asquith
Chile has become the latest country to impose VAT collections obligations on non-resident providers of electronic services to consumers.
The Senate has now approved a new law which will oblige VAT registrations for foreign sellers of streaming media/video, apps, e-books, gaming, e-learning, SaaS and other internet-based services.
The measure will come into effect in May 2020, subject to confirmation by the Constitutional Court. The current VAT rate in Chile is 19%.
