Italy confirms Pescara MOSS office


Italy confirms Pescara MOSS office

Italy confirmed yesterday that its Pescara VAT office is responsible for the processing of MOSS VAT registrations and returns.

All Italian firms providing e-serivces to Italian and other EU consumers should file their Mini One-Stop-Shop digital services returns at Pescara. Non-EU companies choosing Italy as their single registration country should contact Pescara too.

The MOSS registration scheme was introduced on 1 January 2015. It enables all EU digital services providers to file a single return covering all sales to consumers outside of their domestic VAT return. It mirrored a regime for non-EU companies which had been in place since 2003. The MOSS return was implemented following the change in place of supply rules on B2C digital VAT.
