The EU Directorate-General for Tax and Customs Union has announced that its eLearning modules on value-added tax (VAT) are now available in 15 languages.

The eLearning modules present the fundamental elements of the VAT Directive, with an EU-wide perspective (not explaining national variations and derogations).

Launched primarily for member states' tax officials, the tutorials are useful for anyone interested in attaining a good basic knowledge of EU VAT law. They are freely available for download.

The twelve eLearning modules on VAT are now available in 15 languages: Bulgarian, Dutch, English, German, Greek, Italian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish, and Swedish, as well as the language of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The online courses, which typically last less than an hour, cover the following topics:

  • An introduction to VAT;
  • The EU VAT territory;
  • What is a taxable person;
  • VAT transactions;
  • Place of taxable transactions;
  • Digital services and the mini one stop shop;
  • Chargeable events and taxable amounts;
  • VAT rates;
  • VAT exemptions;
  • The right to deduct;
  • VAT refunds; and
  • VAT obligations.
