New VAT rules in connection with distance sale of goods to consumers

On 1 July 2021 new rules enter into force which will affect the VAT treatment of goods and services sold to consumers in the EU. The rules are intended to modernise and facilitate the VAT treatment with respect to e-commerce with consumers in the EU. 

In 2020 a unanimous Danish Parliament passed a number of new VAT rules implementing the EU e-commerce package. The rules are due to the increasing e-commerce across EU Member States, which has rendered an adjustment of the VAT rules necessary. 

The rules were originally to have entered into force on 1 January 2021 but due to COVID-19 the entry into force was postponed until 1 July 2021.
