Greece 23% e-book VAT

Thu 5th Nov 2015

Greece has confirmed that the standard VAT rate applies to the provision of electronic books. This is in line with the March 2015 ECJ e-book VAT ruling against France and Luxembourg who were applying their reduced VAT rates.

Printed books, newspapers and journals remain at the reduced Greek VAT rate of 6%. The provision of printing services to booksellers should be charged at the standard Greek VAT rate.
