Austria announce that online marketplaces will be liable for their merchants’ unpaid VAT from 2020

8 March 2019

Austria recently announced that from 1 January 2020, it plans to make online marketplaces (such as eBay, Amazon etc.) liable for unpaid VAT by merchants selling through their platforms.

This new liability follows similar regulations introduced by Germany and the UK and should help to prevent online VAT fraud, which is estimated to cost the European Union up to €5 billion per year.
