Changes to Greek registration rules

Since 2013, business established within the EU (but outside Greece) have been permitted to register for Greek VAT directly, rather than through a Greek representative, however until now now it has been extremely complex to make any changes to the registration details, or indeed to deregister from Greek VAT.

The Greek government (under decision 1153/201) has now announced new procedures which enable EU established entities to report changes to the Greek authorities, or indeed to deregister from VAT if they no longer have any taxable activity.

In addition, EU businesses who have previously registered through a local representative may now register directly, whilst retaining the previous Greek VAT number.
