Kosovo’s VAT obligations for foreign suppliers of digital services, in place since September 2015, are expected to be amended during 2020.
Kosovo’s VAT rules closely resemble those that are in place in neighbouring Albania. There is also an alignment with the European Union's (EU) VAT rules.
Despite not being a member of the Eurozone Kosovo uses the euro as its currency. This means that VAT returns and payments to the Kosovo tax authority must be made in euro. Filing returns and payments in euro simplify the foreign exchange (FX) obligations for businesses that transact in other currencies, e.g. US dollar. The FX source is also the European Central Bank (ECB) similar to the EU and it can simplify any potential integration.
