  • B2B Services supplied by non-resident suppliers are now subject to 15% VAT
  • VAT remittances should now be electronic wires
  • VAT is due at the time of supply rather than the time of invoicing if materially difference
  • Goods removed from the VAT net include: 3D printing; cereals; video camera; hospital furniture; and autobus manufacturing
