Registration

VAT registration

In the event that a company has taxable activities in another country, VAT registration is required. Furthermore, if sales to individuals exceed the threshold for registration in the countries concerned, VAT registration is also required.

It may be difficult to assess whether or not a company must be registered and from what point in time the VAT registration need to be valid. In many countries, we can handle any contact with the authorities as well as the paperwork in connection to a registration. Additionally we can perform the periodic VAT returns and any eventual Intrastat or other statistical reporting.

In some countries, a local fiscal representative is required but in that case we have a large network of partners that we work with.

In a few instances, we will not be able to assist with the VAT registration, but we will then be happy to help arrange contact with local offices.
