As the E-Learning “VAT & B2B transactions” only covers the EU VAT Law from a broader perspective and is purposely designed as a short introduction training, it can however not explain national specifications and derogations or provide solutions for an individual case. It also does not address the VAT treatment of B2C transactions. If you are interested in an E-Learning on both B2B and B2C transactions, we recommend our general VAT Online Course!
