VAT Alert (02/07/2013)
Rules for place of supply of storage services clarified

This is specifically the case when the service covers, inter alia, admission of goods into a warehouse and appropriate storage of those goods (CJEU 27 June 2013, C-155/12, RR Donnelley Global Turnkey Solutions Poland sp. z o.o.). In Belgium, this may have an impact on the current administrative tolerance which allows the invoicing of every storage service to professionals with the ‘reverse charge mechanism’.
