Ensight Finance is presenting the WTS Global VAT News edition for Q4 2017. The edition focuses again on changes in compliance duties in various EU and non-EU countries in order to inform, especially non-resident companies, regarding their VAT and GST compliance duties in the foreign countries in which they operate.
In this issue, a special topic is the new Romanian split payment mechanism which started on an optional basis in October 2017 and will become compulsory in 2018 for certain categories of taxpayers. In this regard, taxpayers will have to open a separate bank account for the receipt of VAT payments from their customers.
