The Negative Impact of E-Commerce Vat on Education in Kosovo

Enver Sele, Doktoral Studies in Economi (Albania)


Technology advanced developments and need for updated information are factors contributing to the way how University students, in particular, embrace digital libraries offered as opportunities by the educational institutions, where they attend Bachelor studies. Students of the time in which we live, are capable to investigate various topics that may favor the expansion of their knowledge and updating with the latest research methods. In Kosovo, basically the Universities lack online libraries for the students, thus preventing the opportunity for fresh information. On the other hand, VAT introduction on e-commerce transactions has an impact on the education cost, as well as educational institutions, thus directly affecting the inability to have updated scientific information both for the students and academic staff members, reducing the number of scientific researches. Based on an empirical quantitative study, the present study aims to investigate the VAT impact rate of e-commerce transactions on teaching quality and creational skills of the University students in Kosovo.

Keywords: VAT; University; e-commerce, teaching; creational skills.
