Russia - Supply of e-services to have VAT added for non-residents


From the 1st of January 2017 all digital service providers will have to charge 18% VAT on their sales of e-services to consumers in Russia.

Currently only non-resident businesses do not have to charge VAT on their sales.

The tax will affect the following:

  • Streaming or downloading games, music, films and apps
  • E-books
  • E-journals
  • Internet services such as membership charges to websites
