Earlier this month, bill number 34755, which would modify the treatment of vouchers under the Dutch VAT Act, was introduced to the Dutch Parliament. The proposed law would differentiate between single use vouchers, defined as vouchers where the place of supply and amount of VAT on the supply are known at the time of the voucher’s issuance, and other vouchers. The transfer of a single use voucher would be considered a taxable act, while the transfers of other vouchers would be VAT free, with VAT collected on the actual delivery of goods or operation of service based on the value of the voucher. The proposal is meant to bring the Dutch VAT Act into conformity with EU Council Directive 2016/1065.
