Currently, when a French company subject to VAT provides intra-community services, it must complete a European Services Declaration (DES). Unlike the Trade of Goods Declaration (DEB), there is no minimum amount up to which the DES is not required: when the service provided is intra-community in nature, a DES must be prepared from the first euro.
The customs authority is responsible for the technical side of the European Services Declaration (for example, online filing), while the Public Finances Directorate General (DGFiP) handles all regulatory matters (for example, assistance for online tax filers, the nature and place of the provision of the services concerned, guidance, the concept of a taxable person or entity, place of business and permanent establishment, etc.).
Subcontracting your DES to experts allows you to benefit from a comprehensive, professional and efficient service, fully compliant with the current regulations and declaration submission deadline.
