The main change to the regime is that the rules are now going to be effective from 1 July 2024, as opposed to 1 April 2024, which was originally provided.

The order largely includes the same provisions and language as the previous one, but it further includes:

  • Guidance on the applicable foreign exchange rate for VAT compliance
  • Clarification that nonresident digital services providers and marketplaces are required to issue VAT invoices and provides specific invoice requirements for both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions
  • Measures introducing relief for taxpayers from certain record-keeping requirements
