Serbia VAT update

  • Oct 24, 2019 | Richard Asquith

The Serbian parliament has approved a range of VAT changes. They will largely continue the harmonisation of the country’s indirect tax regime with the European Union.

The amendments are listed below, and come into effect on 1 January 2020:

  • Limiting the obligation on foreign VAT registered businesses to appoint a local VAT agent to where VAT exempt with input VAT credits;
  • Setting the time of supply, when VAT is due, for intellectual property supplies as the date of the invoice;
  • Implementation of the new EU VAT rules on vouchers, single and multi-use schemes; and
  • Update on the place-of-supply rules for certain supplies, including trains and boats.
