Estonia e-publications 9% VAT rate May 2020
- Apr 10, 2020 | Richard Asquith
The Estonian parliament has voted for the harmonisation of the Value Added Tax rate to the reduced rate on paper-based equivalents. This includes: e-books; recorded audiobooks; digitally posted educational materials; and online journals or newspapers.
This will mean e-publications will benefit from the 9% reduced VAT rate instead of the current standard VAT rate of 20%. The implementation date is 1 May 2020.
The measure follows the EU agreement to harmonise e-book VAT rates in 2018.
