1 Indirect Tax Changes to the place of supply rules in 2015 How do they affect egaming?

2 The place of supply rules relating to where VAT is both collected and remitted for certain services will be changing within the European Union with effect from 1 January This change will affect businesses providing telecommunications, broadcasting or electronically supplied services to non-taxable or private customers in EU Member States. Currently, these services are taxed where the business supplier is established. However, going forward, businesses will need to charge and account for VAT in the EU country where the customer belongs/where the service is consumed.

3 Who will be affected? The changes will not affect businesses supplying services on a business-to-business ( B2B ) basis. The rules regarding B2B supplies of services will not change. The changes will affect EU businesses supplying Telecommunications, Broadcasting and E-services direct to a customer that is not in business. Examples of services that will be affected include the following.

4 Why is this important for egaming suppliers? The changes to the VAT rules relating to the place of supply of services to be introduced from 1 January 2015, could potentially have a significant effect on businesses established in the EU that provide on-line gaming services. From 1 January 2015 the place of supply of electronically supplied services provided by a business established in the EU to a person (other than a business) will change from being the place where the supplier belongs to the place where the customer belongs. Currently an EU supplier providing egaming services to EU players only has to consider the VAT regulations in the country in which the supplier is established and, if the services are subject to VAT under the local regulations, the supplier only has to apply VAT at the rate applicable in the country in which it is established. From 1 January 2015, that will all change. The place of supply of such services will become the place where the customer belongs rather than where the supplier belongs. This means that the supplier will need to know whether the service they are supplying is subject to VAT under the VAT legislation in the country where the customer belongs and, if the supply is subject to VAT, apply the rate of VAT applicable in the EU country where the customer belongs. This would not be such an issue if the VAT regulations were the same in each EU country but unfortunately they are not. The legislation in each country should be consistent with the EU VAT Directive but there is scope within the EU VAT Directive for Member States to determine what is exempt from VAT and what is not. A provision already exists under the EU Directive that provides for the exemption from VAT for transactions of betting, lotteries and other forms of gambling, subject to limitations laid down by each Member State. However, the gaming services which this exemption covers vary from Member State to Member State. For example, the VAT exemption may apply to Lotteries and Betting but not to Poker, Bingo or Casino. So potentially the exemption may apply in some countries but not in others.

5 What will this mean for an EU supplier of these services? From 1 January 2015, an egaming company that has players in the EU will need to consider whether the services they provide will be subject to VAT in any of the EU countries where they have players. If so there may be a requirement to register for VAT in the country in which taxable supplies are being made or it may be possible to use the Mini-One-Stop-Shop ( MOSS ) system in the country in which the egaming country is established. The MOSS system is a means whereby a supplier that is registered for VAT can declare, through their local VAT registration, any VAT they owe the authorities in other EU jurisdictions without having to register for VAT in another EU jurisdiction. egaming companies therefore need to consider the following questions: In which countries do I have players? Are the services I provide in those countries covered by the VAT exemption for betting and gaming? If the VAT exemption does not apply, what is VAT chargeable on? What VAT rate is applicable? Can my systems cope with the information I need? Is there an obligation to register for VAT in any other EU countries? Will I be better off using the MOSS system?

6 What will the changes mean for non-eu suppliers of these services? Since 1 January 2010, non-eu suppliers of Business-to-Consumer ( B2C ) supplies of electronically supplied services have had an obligation to register for VAT in the country where their customer belongs if the value of their taxable supplies has exceeded the VAT registration threshold for a nonestablished supplier (although there is the option for a non-eu established supplier to create an establishment in one specific EU country and declare VAT in that country on all the supplies it makes in other EU countries). A non-eu supplier of electronically supplied services will be in exactly the same position following the changes to be introduced in There may however, be more scrutiny of electronically supplied services by the authorities. Now may be an opportune time for a non-eu supplier to ensure they are compliant with the EU VAT regulations relating to the supplies they make.

7 What will the changes mean for non-eu suppliers of these services? Since 1 January 2010, non-eu suppliers of Business-to-Consumer ( B2C ) supplies of electronically supplied services have had an obligation to register for VAT in the country where their customer belongs if the value of their taxable supplies has exceeded the VAT registration threshold for a non-established supplier (although there is the option for a non-eu established supplier to create an establishment in one specific EU country and declare VAT in that country on all the supplies it makes in other EU countries). A business in the EU providing telecommunications, broadcasting or eservices on a B2C basis will need to consider some of the following questions: Are the supplies I make subject to VAT in the country where my customer belongs? Do the use and enjoyment rules apply to the services I provide? Are my customers in business or not (for example, charities or foundations may not be in business)? How do I determine where my customers belong for VAT purposes? How should I document where my customers belong for VAT purposes? Is there a requirement to register for VAT in the EU country where I have customers? Can my systems determine where the customer belongs and the value of services provided to customers in each country? Will my systems deal with charging VAT at different rates depending on where the customer is located? Would I be better off using the MOSS system rather than registering for VAT in each individual EU country where I have customers? If I am in a supply chain what obligations fall on me?

8 How can KPMG help? KPMG can help you by taking a step-by-step approach to make sure you are ready for the implementation of the changes by 1 January We have already taken some preliminary steps to establish the scope of the VAT exemption for betting and gaming in a number of EU jurisdictions. This will help us narrow down the number of jurisdictions where you may have a potential issue. KPMG can: Undertake a full review of the services you provide to determine whether the changes will affect your business; Identify your obligations in each EU country; Advise on the best method of compliance for you; Use the KPMG global network to obtain specific advice in other EU jurisdictions in which you operate; Help you decide whether to use the MOSS system or register for VAT in each EU jurisdiction in which an obligation arises; Assist you with testing your systems and making sure you have all the data necessary for compliance; and Help you with your VAT compliance through registration in the Isle of Man or through our EU VAT compliance centre. If you think these changes may affect you, please contact us for an initial discussion. There will be no charge for this.
