Switzerland is proposing to bring the VAT treatment of online media and e-books into line with printed publications.
Currently digital publications are subject to the standard rate of VAT of 8%, while printed publications (offering the same reading content) are normally liable to VAT at reduced rate of 2.5%.
If accepted, then this will be implemented from 1 January 2018.
