EU VAT Compliance
We are seeing an increase in businesses that have, require or desire EU VAT registrations. This could be due to them expanding their customer base by utilising sales platforms that have multi-country sites, preparing for Brexit by holding stock overseas or setting up an EU office to handle EU contracts post-Brexit.
These additional EU VAT registrations bring a number of different VAT compliance requirements. In addition to the VAT returns (some of which are monthly), certain countries require sales and purchase listings, annual returns, annual prepayments and Intrastat (depending on turnover). The format of the various returns differ to those in the UK which can make complying with the various requirements challenging!
To be able to help our clients on this journey and in anticipation of the needs of businesses once the Brexit transitional period ends, we are pleased to announce our EU VAT compliance offering.
We understand that businesses don’t want to deal with multiple advisers, monitor deadlines and track sales to different jurisdictions so Mitchell Charlesworth’s fully managed service means:
- You have one point of contact for all countries
- You provide us with your sales data
- We prepare all your returns
- We provide you with copy returns and payment details
- We submit your returns
- We monitor the sales values in case you need to register anywhere else in the EU
- We negotiate with the local tax office if required
Our VAT team has extensive EU supply chain experience which means they can advise on any supply chain structuring or challenges that you may encounter with expanding your business or dealing with changes brought about by Brexit.
