In the midst of the COVID-19 situation that has impacted the whole world, we have managed to adapt and to transform the previously planned lecture into a digital format. Together with our colleagues from PwC, on March 31th 2020, we organized the very first ABSL Webinar!

“VAT treatment of professional services in accordance with the Law on VAT in BiH” was the theme of this webinar and it was elaborated by Alisa Šehović, tax consultant working for PricewaterhouseCoopers Tax and Advisory.

Our first digital session, hosted on the Google Hangouts platform, covered several useful and interesting topics, especially relevant for companies working within or cooperating with the BFSI sector. Ms. Šehović sucessfully managed to start an important conversation and offered valuable insights to representatives of 25 companies.

Within the hour long webinar, our lecturer talked about the general and special rules of taxation of services within the VAT system in BiH, taxation of services under the EU Directives, accounting and tax treatment in case of services received from abroad and answered all additional questions posed by the attendees. All of the attendees received the webinar recording and were also encouraged to send any questions they might come accross after reviewing the recording.

In conclusion, the first ABSL Webinar was rated as extremely useful and relevant and we managed to provoke active interest of the present profesionals, who expressed their interest in future similar events and suggested possible future conversation topics, relevant to the sectors within which they operate.
