VAT Representation

TAX Representation for VAT

Where a company is required to be registered for VAT in another country as a result of its business activities, it may be necessary to appoint a local tax representative.

The fiscal representative will usually be jointly and severally liable for the VAT owed by the business. Several countries in Europe require the appointment of a local representative to act for non EU companies who have an obligation to register for VAT.

There is no requirement for EU businesses to appoint a tax representative when obtaining a VAT registration in another EU Member State. However, many EU member states do require non-EU businesses to appoint a tax representative when registering for VAT locally. Equally, a tax representative for VAT is necessary when there is a requirement for a non-resident business to be registered for VAT in many countries outside of the EU.
