should you rEgister for vAt iN FRANCE ? should you charge VAT TO YOUR CLIENTS ?

If your company brings in or purchases in France goods they store or manufacture in France, and then sell or ship outside of France, it must be registered for VAT in France, regardless whether their customers are individuals (B to C) or businesses (B to B).

Although exports are exempt from VAT, as well as sales to businesses located in other EU Member States (intra-Community supplies), they must be reported on a French VAT return .

Intra-Community supplies must also be reported on Intrastat returns (« Déclaration d’Echanges de Biens »),

Finally, if your company ships the goods out of France and is established in a country outside the European Union that has not signed any administrative assistance agreement with France, it must appoint a tax representative in France.
