Digital Platforms Being Deputized in Tax Collection

Digital Platforms Being Deputized in Tax Collection

Across the world, digital marketplaces like Uber, Airbnb, eBay, and Amazon are being tasked with guaranteeing tax compliance for the sellers using their platforms. This shift in duties means digital marketplaces need to ensure sellers are paying the correct amount of tax — like VAT, hotel/tourist taxes, or other local taxes.

Watch this session to hear expert panelists discuss EU guidance — including DAC 7 — and OECD guidance on reporting by platform operators. We examine the “fairness” of new compliance obligations, and the overall impact platforms have on local economies and tax revenue. And provide a comparative look at various solutions in different jurisdictions, exploring the pros and cons and early lessons learned as this trend continues to grow.
