Mandatory Taiwanese VAT Registration for B2C Providers of Electronic Services Due May 1

As of May 1, 2017, foreign providers of Business-to-Consumer (B2C) electronic services to Taiwanese customers must register for value added tax if their annual B2C sales exceed a VAT registration threshold of TWD480,000 in a calendar year.

Foreign suppliers can register either directly or through a tax-filing agent.
