Million Euros in Intracommunity VAT managed in 2018
After working for 20 years in customs agencies, I begin my intra-community activity with the opening of borders in 1993.
Keen to make an international development, I open ASD Group’s first society in 2000.
Twenty years later, ASD Group provides you with 160 associates spread around 25 countries.
With a consolidated turnover of K€14,000 in 2018 for a portfolio of 6,000 clients in BtoB, ASD stands as one of the leaders in its field.
Always looking towards the future, I have wanted ASD to be innovative in terms of processing.
With the creation of support platforms for data management and retention, we are making information streams flow better and more securely in order to ease our clients’ lives.
So, don’t hesitate: make the choice of experience and competence.

Opening up of the EU borders. All import/export operations between Member States became intra-community acquisitions and deliveries. In one night, all customs formalities changed, trade of goods declarations were created. From this opportunity is created ASD, developing a nationwide activity based in Lille. ASD Group assists French companies in submitting DEB (Trade of goods declarations) then follows up by offering the service of fiscal representation for foreign companies in France.
As well as fiscal representation (for companies established outside of the UE), ASD Group sets up a new service for intra-community companies: Tax agent, who handles administrative formalities to ensure compliance with local regulations.
ASD opens its first branch abroad, in Valencia, Spain. At the same time, the company becomes the owner of the offices in Sophia-Antipolis, and therefore settles permanently at 310 rue du Vallon in Sophia Antipolis.
Constantly evolving, ASD Group decides to start operating in Eastern Europe to meet increasing demands. The first ASD Group branch of that part of the world opens in the Czech Republic
ASD Group exceeds a turnover of a million euros. The company continues to develop and strengthen its expertise.
ASD Group extends its network of agencies in Europe and opens new branches in Poland (Warsaw and Katowice) and Belgium (Comines).
Many Swiss companies would call upon ASD Group for fiscal representation in Europe. In 2009, the step is taken and the first non-community branch is created at Marin Epagnier in Switzerland. This development also allowed to offer a new service: Fiscal representation and VAT reimbursement in Switzerland.
The European directive and VAT regulations go through a major change in 2010. The VAT package is established and terms of VAT refund evolve. 2010 remains an important year of reference in legislation.
ASD Group continues to expand and opens to African and Asian markets, by creating agencies in Morocco (Casablanca) and China (Shanghai). These far-away markets are strategic countries for ASD Group. These agencies allow to build closer relations with current clients in these countries but also to offer new services to our european clients.
To gain a better understanding of the Chinese market, and to assist its agency in Shanghai, ASD Group creates and opens a new branch in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is the core platform for South East Asia.
In order to continue assisting its clients development, ASD Group opens a new branch a new continent. The Montreal agency in Canada is created in 2013.
