Fiscal Representation for VAT
Where a company is required to be registered for VAT in another country as a result of its business activities, it may be necessary to appoint a local Fiscal Representative.
The Fiscal Representative will usually be jointly and severally liable for the VAT owed by the business.
There is no requirement for EU businesses to appoint a Fiscal Representative when obtaining a VAT registration in another EU Member State. However, many EU Member States do require non-EU businesses to appoint a Fiscal Representative when registering for VAT locally. Equally, a Fiscal Representative is necessary when there is a requirement for a non-resident business to be registered for VAT in many countries outside of the EU.
Tax Representation offers Fiscal Representation services across Europe and beyond, so that your business is compliant with local VAT obligations.
Our Fiscal Representation services include:
- Ensuring compliance with local fiscal laws for VAT purposes
- Ensuring your business complies with local rules on invoicing, VAT treatment, accounting procedures and VAT filing and payments
- Handling enquiries and tax inspections from the local VAT office
