Russia-B2B e-services

Currently under Russian law, non-established suppliers of e-services to Russian consumers are required to register for Russian VAT, and account for VAT on periodic VAT returns. Presently, VAT is only due upon B2C sales, however it has been confirmed that with effect from 1 January 2019, non-established suppliers must also charge Russian VAT upon B2B supplies of e-services to Russian businesses. Currently this VAT is accounted for by the Russian business customer under the reverse charge.

Affected businesses should now consider their VAT registration obligations in Russia.
