WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
Review of your company’s activities and evaluation of the various possibilities of declarations / registrations and the resulting VAT obligations.
Indeed, if the one-stop-shop can make it possible to reduce administrative costs in the event that the supplier or the electronic interface has declarative and payment obligations in several Member States of the European Union, it is nevertheless necessary to analyze the situation on a case-by-case basis in view of certain constraints of this regime, in particular concerning the management of VAT refund claims and the need to maintain VAT registration in certain cases.
