# New rules for proving intra-Community supplies

Quick fixes. From January 1, 2020, a number of “quick repairs” (the “quick fixes”) will be carried out with regard to the current VAT system. This includes:

1. a simplification for “call off stocks”;
2. the introduction of the customer’s VAT identification number as a material condition for applying the 0% VAT rate for intra-Community supplies; and
3. introduction of rules of evidence for intra-Community supplies;
a simplification of chain transactions.

In the article, we have discussed “quick fixes 2 to 4”. In summary, this concerns the new rules of evidence with regard to the proof of intra-Community supplies and thus of the application of the 0% VAT rate for intra-Community supplies.
