Spread the love

Slovenia’s Financial Administration clarified VAT for online sales and long-distance shipments toward other EU members. 


Clarification includes:  

  • Confirmation on when shipping charges are considered part of a single transaction with online stores, or at a distance to taxpayers in the trader’s country of residence, or another member nation 
  • The transportation charges are not recognized as a separate transaction because a consumer has the option of delivery choices. 
  • A buyer has a choice of delivery services; transport fees are not classified as a separate purchase. 
  • VAT should be declared and collected by the seller for goods carried. The buyer is accountable when products or services are immediately available to the customer after purchasing. 
  • Statement on courier service VAT rates
