Russia to impose VAT on foreign B2B digital services

31 January 2018

From 1 January 2019, Russia will amend its current VAT legislation to state that non-resident businesses selling digital services to other businesses within Russia will have to VAT register and charge VAT on their supplies.

Currently non-resident providers of this type of service only have to register and charge VAT if they are providing these services to non-business (consumer) customers.

This applies to a range of electronic services including streaming games, music, apps, films, e-books, e-journals and internet services.
