Survey: How Will The New EU VAT Laws Impact Your Business?
There are changes in EU VAT legislation from January 1st that will directly hit any business, worldwide, that trades with consumers in the EU, outside of its own country.

It effectively brings in corporate levels of administration and regulation that will now be applied to even the smallest of businesses. But most businesses are unaware of this.

If you run a business, anywhere - large or small - that trades with EU consumers, PLEASE complete this survey, to help us collect data to help the EU Decision-Makers to urgently reform the legislation.

If you have not yet started your business, please reply to the questions from the point of view of what you plan to do.

All responses are anonymous.
