    Since January 2017 (Federal Law # 244-FZ of 3 July 2016), non-resident providers of electronic services to Russian customers have been required to register for, and charge VAT.  This mirrors similar regimes in the European Union and other countries around the world.


    Income from services included within the definition of e-services includes: streaming video, music or gaming; e-books, hosting websites; broadcast TV or radio; online telephony and data.

    From 1st January 2019, non-resident suppliers of B2B (business-to-business) electronically supplied services will need to register with the Federal Tax Service in Russia, accounting for any VAT owed.
    Foreign businesses are required to register by 15th February 2019, via the Federal Tax Service’s portal for online service providers. VAT returns and payments will now be due on a quarterly basis by the 25th day of the month following the reporting period. Russian businesses and private entrepreneurs will be able to reclaim their input VAT.  Registration is still mandatory for foreign providers of VAT exempt supplies such as software licenses.
