We make meeting your European VAT obligations simple.


E-commerce, online retailers and marketplace sellers

According to European law, any businesses that sell goods directly to customers via the internet (on your own website or on a platform such as Amazon or Facebook) will be obliged to register for VAT if either of the following requirements is met:

1. Ownership of stock in a foreign country

  • If your goods are stored in a foreign European warehouse or fulfilment centre, you are obliged to register your business in those European countries the moment your stock is stored in those countries.
  • If you use Amazon’s FBA service, you are obliged to register in all countries in which you use fulfilment centres.
  • Use of Amazon’s Pan FBA service requires immediate registration in 7 countries.

2. Distance sale

If you export goods from your local jurisdiction into other EU countries, you are required to register in each of those countries once you exceed their country-specific sales threshold.

Your VAT obligation

If you are required to register for VAT, your obligation will consist of two steps:

  • Initial VAT registration.
  • Ongoing VAT submission, at frequencies specified by each country.

Our Managed Compliance solution makes the whole process easy. We will manage all your VAT reporting obligations for you, so that you can concentrate on growing your business.
