V1.306 Brexit—place of supply of services


V1.306 Brexit—place of supply of services

The place of supply of services is covered generally in V3.181. HMRC previously announced that, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the place of supply rules would remain the same. In the event, a revised Withdrawal Agreement was agreed with the EU1, followed by a last-minute Trade and Cooperation Agreement2

There has been no radical overhaul of the pre-existing place of supply rules for services, although there are a number of consequential changes to the rules which took effect from IP completion day. T(CT)A 20183 makes a number of amendments to VATA 1994, Sch 4A (which deals with the special rules for the place of supply of services) which are described in this paragraph.

For an overview of the VAT implications of Brexit more broadly, see V1.301.
