Fiscal Representation

VAT: a fiscal regulatory obligation, a game changer for your development in Europe

Supporting your growth and ensuring local VAT compliance

Do you wish to develop your activity in Europe? For this you must have a VAT number in each of the countries in which you wish to operate and makes supplies.

Indeed, VAT remains primarily a national tax governed by each national tax authority.

Two solutions are available to you:

  • create a subsidiary
  • appoint a fiscal representative

The first solution can often be long and costly and involves detailed technical input on local regulatory requirements, which are often complex.
