Digital economy

In recent years it has become clear that the digital economy is the most 'emerging' market in the coming period. Businesses want to operate in as many countries as possible and nearly always use the internet to achieve this goal. Thus, they do not need a physical presence in the country they are operating in, which is highly beneficial but also has adverse effects. For example, not being present in a country could lead to unfamiliarity with local tax rules and tax reporting obligations.

All businesses, whether they specifically target the digital environment or only use digital technologies to facilitate their core activities, might sooner rather than later have to comply with tax rules specifically implemented for targeting the digital economy. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the new VAT rules for e-commerce, a Digital Services Tax or payment reporting obligations. Together with our WTS Global colleagues (who are present in more than 100 countries), our multidisciplinary team can help your business discover the initially “hidden” tax hurdles in the country/countries in which you operate.
