Proa Comunicación Helps Organize the MADRID VAT FORUM 2020

Proa Comunicación is assisting, for the second consecutive year, the organization of MADRID VAT FORUM, the most influential Spanish conference on intra-community VAT. In addition to managing media relations and establishing the conference’s communication office, Proa developed the landing page, where tickets can be purchased, and the promotional video.

In recent years, the so-called Common VAT System has been subject to a series of modifications at the community level with the main objectives of harmonizing certain aspects of the indirect taxation of ecommerce, fighting against fraud, as well as proposing a series of solutions to facilitate intra-community trade of goods. Some of these modifications have already been approved and others are currently under negotiation pending final approval.

MADRID VAT FORUM 2020 will be held on Thursday, February 13, 2020 in the auditorium of the Madrid Press Association (Calle Juan Bravo, 6). At this event, the main changes and modifications recently proposed in the field of intra-community VAT will be presented and discussed.

In addition, other issues that tend to be the subject of controversy will be discussed, such as confrontation between formal requirements and exercising the right to deduct the VAT incurred or the VAT treatment of holding companies.

Finally, the impact that the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union will have on the field of VAT will be analyzed and a review of the recent jurisprudence of the European Union Court of Justice regarding VAT will be made. In addition, the event will analyze the way in which all this will affect the activity of the companies involved in international trade and their relationship with the different tax administrations.
