choosing a tax aget to facilitate your taxable operations


To fulfill the declarative requirements of the country where the company is subject to VAT, it must be identified for VAT in that country. There are two options:

Create a local company 

Use the services of a tax agent 

  • Forming a company considerably increases your obligations and your operating costs (creation of articles of association, keeping accounts, payment of taxes on companies in the country, etc.).

  • The tax mandate is a much simpler administrative solution and allows avoiding forming a company. Indeed, a tax agent registers you for VAT in the country, which enables you to operate like a standard local company. 


Certain taxable operations require VAT registration in another country of the European community. The following are a few examples of such operations:

intra-community deliveries and acquisitions

stockpiling or holding stocks on consignment in another member country 

exceeding the threshold in distance selling

certain purchase or resale operations in another member country 

certain service provisions (for example, construction)
