[Alert] - EU and Non-EU VAT complications
Hi Sentora Community,

It would seem many small businesses, SME's and Soletraders are completely unaware of the impending EU VAT MOSS legalisation which WILL affect most of us running web or server hosting services as of 1st January 2015.

Both non-eu and EU businesses will now be required to charge consumers (customers not VAT registered) their country's rate of VAT.

You then have two choices:

  1. register in each member of state you sell to for VAT returns (28 of them!)
  2. register in your state for VAT and VAT MOSS 
VAT MOSS returns will automatically distribute the collected VAT to each member of state on your behalf. This is going to be an administrative nightmare for all us micro / from home businesses.



There is an online petition which if you are in the EU in a country with a minimum VAT registration threshold could protect you from 28 countries worth of fine, rates and legislation:

or the new one:

We need more people shouting about this online and to their local tax offices / MEP's / MPs and other influential people!

Please use any social media (twitter, facebook, google+) to get this trending and raise awareness now. I'm available on PM or the zVPS.uk contact page if anyone needs further information. Twitter hashtags being used include:
- #VATMOSS
- #VATMESS
