You can only register for the One Stop Shop (OSS) in one EU member country. When you submit your OSS return, that country shares the data with the relevant other member states. Here’s where you need to register your business.
If your business is established in the EU, you are required to register for the One Stop Shop in the member state in which you are established.
Each country has its own digital portal through which to register for the OSS and submit returns.
If a business established outside the EU has a fixed establishment in an EU country, it must register in that country. On the other hand, if you have fixed establishments in one or more member countries, you must register in one of the member states in which you have a fixed establishment.
If you do not have a fixed establishment, you can choose in which country to register for the OSS.
Note: companies that are not established in the EU may need to appoint an intermediary to register.
When can I register for the OSS?
The OSS comes into effect from 1 July 2021. However, many authorities activated pre-registration from 1 April 2021. If you wish to take advantage of the OSS, be sure to have effective processes and technology in place.
