The European Commission has published statistics on the EU VAT Mini One Stop Shop (VAT MOSS). The statistics show that overall, the VAT revenues collected under the VAT MOSS system show constant growth in the range of €3 billion in 2015 to more than €4.5 billion in 2018. 

The VAT MOSS is the system for the collection and transmitting of VAT for telecommunications, broadcasting and electronic services (TBE services) supplied to final consumers across the 28 countries.

The statistics also show that the VAT collected in 2018 increased by more than 20 percent compared to 2017. The number of traders using the MOSS to declare and remit cross-border VAT has also increased in this period.
