VAT tax and other taxes in two-sided marketplaces

Remove ads while supporting the Unscripted philosophy...become an INSIDER.


Sep 27, 2020

We are preparing a two-sided (ie. multi-vendor) marketplace.

Can anyone give a hint about the VAT tax and other taxes issue. We (the platform) are a company in the EU that is VAT-registered. Both our merchants and buyers will be companies or people from the EU (including VAT-registered and not VAT registered entities) and outside. So they could be:

EU VAT-registered company
EU non-VAT company
EU person
non-EU company
non-EU person

And each entity can be both merchant or seller, so it gives 25 fiscal combinations.

The question is is there any issue with VAT invoicing/accounting in this case when handling transactions between different entities. I mean are we as a platform eligible for accounting the VAT or other taxes, or do we just do simple money transfers and issue simple invoices?
