I'm not VAT payer, but for foreign company services I should pay VAT twice: in Germany (because I don't have Lithuanian VAT number) and in Lithuania (according to new EU rules). Please be more smarter, you should thinking a little more before signing new international laws.

I am so fed up with the big conglomerates getting richer and more powerful, whilst the 'little man' is starved out of everything. Time to leave the E.U.

This law is utterly crazy & stupid, it's basically destroying tiny businesses & sole traders. Has no one properly thought this through! I thought we were trying to get out of a recession not help it keep going!! I'm really angry about this! Please people sort this out quickly!

I am a very small business selling digital goods online and barely make any sales. How can they expect those of us who are barely surviving to pay taxes

The new VAT laws with no threshold directly harms small modern innovative businesses of the kind Europe needs.

I'm in the process of building my first online business, selling music and sound effects I've created to amateur and established game developers. On a whim I decided to Google whether I'd need to be charging VAT, and then came the first time I'd ever heard of these regulations. This is disgusting and has of course hit me very hard in the hubris. This NEEDS to be fixed.

VAT Thresholds are important to starting and growing small businesses. The EU needs a better business start-up rate, and better new business survival rate. Without a VAT threshold, this legislation forces small suppliers either to restrict their trading to their home country, to throw in their lot with a larger marketplace (often run by an extra-EU entity), or pay disproportionate VAT and Administration fees on trivially small amounts of international income. The EU was supposed to foster cross-border cooperation, understanding and relationships.
