Changes in the Indirect Tax Landscape in 2023

Changes in the Indirect Tax Landscape in 2023

Read our guidance on how long you can expect to wait for your VAT number, depending on the EU country.

Taxually's team of tax experts and researchers have highlighted some of the following changes to the legislative landscape, which could impact our customers and your business in 2023. Below are some highlights you will need to consider.

Changes to Tax Return Forms

Keep an eye out for any changes to tax return forms and ensure they are updated for reporting. In some countries, where reporting happens on the web portal of the tax authority, the forms will be updated for us, but in others, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to check for updates.

Changes to VAT Rates

Be aware of any changes to VAT rates that may have occurred in January, and make sure to follow any relevant transitional measures for tax rate changes when determining and reporting taxes.

Croatia introducing the Euro

Croatia introduces euro

This year, Croatia will be retiring its national currency, the Kuna, and introducing the Euro. This can raise questions about invoicing and tax in the transition.

Introduction of special payment and reporting steps

Before the end of the calendar year, some countries require special payment and reporting steps (such as advance payments in Italy), and you may need to consider advance payments when calculating the VAT balance for the last return of the year.

Annual reporting for 2022

The start of the year marked the beginning of the annual reporting season for the 2022 period. Some of the first annual returns are for Ireland, Spain, and the Canary Islands.

Consider the impact of your last Tax Returns of 2022 and adjustments needed

Be aware that the last tax returns of the previous year may have an impact on the annual tax returns, and consider any possible adjustments and corrections that may need to be made.

Monitor Intrastat reporting thresholds

Intrastat reporting thresholds change from time to time, and this is also expected to happen in 2023.

Other legislative changes

Keep an eye out for any legislative changes in indirect tax, as they may have an impact on your organisation, whether at the EU or country level. It is important to plan ahead and consider what needs your attention.
