Do you provide products or services within the EU Member States, Norway, Switzerland or the United Kingdom? Then you may have to deal with foreign VAT. Depending on the transactions, the customers and the agreed delivery conditions, you may:
- must register for VAT with the local tax authorities in the country where you do business and
- are obliged to file a VAT return.

When should you apply for VAT number?
Have you entered a European market that is new to you? Congratulations! Great opportunities for your organization, but at the same time new challenges for your internal processes. This also applies to VAT.
Do you know that you are obliged to register your organization for VAT at the time of performing a taxable supply (supply of goods and/or services and intra-Community acquisitions) for which the place of taxation is located in that country?
Most European countries don't have a threshold for this, so you must be registered from the first taxable transaction. It’s crucial that everything is arranged correctly and on time, so that your invoices are issued correctly and VAT returns can be submitted on time. Without registration you can’t calculate VAT and submit a VAT return and therefore can’t remit/reclaim the VAT claimed/paid.
