The mini One Stop Shop (MOSS) comes into force on 1 January 2015. It will allow businesses supplying telecom, broadcasting and e-services to non-business customers within the EU to report and pay all Value Added Tax (VAT) charged and collected on those supplies via a web-portal in the EU Member State in which they are identified for VAT.
The web-portal set up by the Malta VAT authorities is now available. Businesses* may apply for registration for the MOSS as of today.
*Businesses with an establishment in Malta or non-EU businesses which do not have an establishment in any EU Member State.
