Date: Wednesday 9 December 2020 

Time: 8:00am  - 9:00am

Location: Zoom webinar

Join us for our upcoming International Indirect Tax webinar– “An update on current and upcoming global VAT/GST requirements for e-tailers and remote sellers”

The tax landscape is changing across the globe as each tax authority wants to collect taxes for supplies which they deem to be taking place in their jurisdiction. This is occurring as the historic VAT and GST systems have struggled to catch up with changes to the pattern of consumption (magnified in a post-Covid world), including the continual shift from traditional bricks and mortar stores to online e-commerce. Tax authorities therefore want to tax B2C supplies of goods where consumption takes place, regardless of where the goods are physically fulfilled from or where the supplier is established.

The webinar will cover remote/distance selling rules across the UK, EU, Australia, Singapore and the US, including:

  • selling into the UK post-Brexit and new registration requirements for non-UK suppliers of low value goods
  • the upcoming “One-Stop-Shop” to streamline VAT compliance in the European Union – including the removal of import and distance selling thresholds
  • the US state tax registration requirements post the “Wayfair” decision and the general economic thresholds
  • specific indirect tax regimes in APAC including the latest GST requirements for selling into Australia and Singapore


The speakers are VAT/GST experts and leaders from Grant Thornton member firms in Europe and APAC regions who will be sharing local insights into this complex area of indirect tax - Alex Baulf (International Indirect Tax Director, Grant Thornton UK), Tony Windle (Global and National Head of Indirect Tax at Grant Thornton Australia), and Jeremy O’Neil (Indirect Tax Senior Manager at Grant Thornton Singapore).

Register to join us and hear from our international indirect tax experts on recent and upcoming VAT/GST requirements that could affect the liability, pricing and margin of your supplies to consumers based in other tax jurisdictions.
