VAT MOSS (Mini One Stop Shop) scheme is for businesses which supply Digital Services to Consumers (Private individuals or non-business entities) in the European Union(EU). VAT will be levied according to the consumer’s location.

Digital Services:

Broadcasting, telecommunications and e-services fall under the digital services category. Examples of e-services are app downloads, video on demand, gaming, e-books, anti-virus software etc.


If your business from the EU sells digital services to consumers in another EU country, VAT will be levied in accordance with the consumer’s EU member country. Your business needs to be registered for VAT with every EU member state where the digital services are being sold which is a pretty tenuous process.

By registering for the VAT MOSS Scheme, your business can skip the process of registering with every EU member state where you supply digital services to consumers.

Once the business registers with the VAT MOSS scheme a single MOSS VAT Return and a VAT Payment should be submitted to the tax agency every quarter. The respective country’s tax agency will take care of forwarding the return and tax payments to the tax authorities of the EU member states.
