Who has to submit VAT returns?

Legal regulations

Who has to submit VAT returns?

Businesses that are registered for VAT in a given country are required to submit periodic VAT returns (usually monthly or quarterly) - even if they have not made any transactions during the reporting period.

Entrepreneurs selling online within the European Union are required to register for VAT in each country where they sell if:

  • They use a warehouse in that country to ship their products to end customers, or

  • They exceed the sales threshold of €10,000 (for all countries combined).

This is worth keeping in mind:

VAT returns summarize all transactions that are a subject to VAT in a specific country. If there are no transactions, a zero return is required.

VAT returns are slightly different in each country. They have different information requirements and reporting formats. However, regardless of the country, the VAT charged on sales must always be reported - depending on the type of transaction, its value and the local tax rate.

Accounting for VAT in different European countries requires familiarity with local tax regulations, specialized knowledge and appropriate language skills.
