New obligations of payment service providers

On 18th February 2020, the European Council adopted a legislative package that applies from 1st January 2024. The objective of this new measure is to give tax authorities of the Member States the right instruments to detect possible e-commerce VAT fraud carried out by sellers established in another Member State or in a non-EU country.

  • Council Directive (EU) 2020/284,
  • Council Regulation (EU) 2020/283,
  • Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1504 containing details about the electronic form for the transmission of the data.

The EU Commission has published Guidelines for Reporting, XSD User Guide and Validation Module, as well as FAQs, available together with the legislative package on the EC website concerning CESOP.

The Czech Republic regulates these obligations by the Act No. 417/2023 Coll., amending the Act No. 235/2004 Coll., on Value Added Tax, as amended, and other related Acts, which entered into force on 1st January 2024.

Reporting payments

Payment Service Providers (PSPs) will need to make a submission of data on cross-border payments every quarter. The submission to each tax administration is required by the end of the month following the end of the quarter. A PSP is required to submit these data to every Member State where it provides services falling within the scope of the reporting obligation.


Disclosure CESOP

The submission of the Disclosure CESOP in the Czech Republic will be made through an electronic form via the MOJE daně website. The data to be reported from the evidence need to be attached to the form and submitted in XML format in the structure defined by the latest XSD User Guide. The Czech Financial Administration recommends using the Validation Module before submission.

The CESOP report submissions will be available as manual or alternatively through API. The Czech Republic is implementing this mechanism according to the EU CESOP documentation and there are no deviations or additions planned in comparison with the EU rules.

Submission of “No Payment Data” messages is not obligatory, though it is recommended.
