Belarus Publishes Draft VAT Registration and Declaration Forms for Foreign E-Service Suppliers — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

The Belarusian Ministry of Taxes and Duties has published VAT registration and declaration (return) forms for foreign e-service suppliers for a brief consultation running 22 to 31 March. From 1 January 2018, foreign suppliers making e-service supplies to individuals in Belarus (B2C) are required to register for VAT in Belarus, file returns, and pay the amount of VAT due at the standard 20% rate. The requirements may also apply for foreign intermediaries.

The registration form is broken down into three main sections, including: details of the supplier/organization; details of the services provided, including the relevant websites and mobile applications; and details of the director or authorized representative. The VAT declaration, which will be required quarterly, is a fairly straightforward form providing details of supplier/intermediary, supplies made, VAT due, etc.
