From when it will work: Split payment is expected to take effect from January 1, 2018. According to the published May 12, 2017. By the Ministry of Development and Finance of the draft amendment to the VAT Act. Who is to apply: taxable persons who have received an invoice with the amount of VAT indicated will be able to choose whether to pay the document in full to the basic account of the supplier, or to make the payment using the split payment mechanism. The issuer of the invoice will therefore not have any actual effect on the type of payment method used by its customers. The entity that will use the split VAT payment mechanism is to be entitled to many of the privileges that will be associated with this system. The privileges will be so attractive to taxpayers that they themselves will want to use it. It is assumed that entrepreneurs who decide to run a system for the decoupled VAT payment will not be subject to sanctions under the VAT Act (30 or 100% of the amount of the liability in the case where the invoice has been badly settled) and the so-called. Solidarity responsibility. It will be subject to the so-called. Fast VAT Refund path within 25 days. Principle of operation: The split payment method assumes that the net amount sold for the goods or services will affect the existing company account, the VAT amount will be transferred to the additional dedicated bank account of such payments. The amount of VAT accumulated on this separate account will be used to pay the invoice to your Subcontractor or pay for VAT to US. The introduction of Split Payment may result in a loss of liquidity for the trader, because the excess VAT amounts will be blocked on the respective accounts for this dedicated account. Impact on information systems: Any company that uses electronic data interchange systems with banks (sending payment for commitments and receiving payments for receivables) will need to make appropriate changes to the information systems. Today, transfers are going to parcels, summed in gross amounts and are allocated to receivables accounts. Once the Split payment has been entered, payments will have to be made in net and VAT values separately and likewise posted. This forces changes in electronic banking systems.
