Cameroon VAT on foreign e-commerce

28 February 2020

Cameroon has extended its Value-Added Tax (VAT) system to cover supplies of online goods and services supplied by non-resident (foreign) companies in the country.

Prior to January 2020, foreign businesses providing e-commerce supplies of goods and services to both consumer and business customers did not have to charge VAT on their sales. However, in order to remove the unfair advantage that this gave to non-resident companies over resident providers, the Cameroon government have announced that VAT at 19.25% will be applied to these types of transactions.

Non-resident businesses will now be expected to register with the Cameroonian Ministry of Finance to submit monthly VAT returns.
