ETOA Webinar | Taxation on tourism products online

During this webinar we will discuss tax issues arising from the way tourism services are distributed online (agency, net rate models, B2B) and the regulator’s perception of them.

The European Commission has for some time been investigating the taxation of tourism product sold online, in particular websites which sell both taxable accommodation (such as hotels) and untaxed accommodation (such as individual rooms in private homes). New taxation proposals are being explored including platform liability for paying the VAT on the component products. During the webinar we will discuss what these proposals might be and what the implications are for online distribution in the future.
