Cross-border VAT advice

Opportunities for tax optimisation of cross-border business relationships arise above all for VAT, because this is often already relevant with the first business activity abroad. We will help your company to expand successfully abroad. Cross-border business is becoming increasingly easy for companies, particularly in the area of cross-border mail order business via marketplaces which offer fulfilment solutions. However, regulations in the EU countries have unfortunately not developed at the same rate. Initial attempts such as the digitisation package and the EU Action Plan on VAT might provide some relief here, but have not yet been fully approved.

We will answer your questions about cross-border VAT issues and inform you about registration and declaration obligations and about statutory regulations. We will also develop tailored solutions for Germany and abroad.

  • „Companies registering for VAT abroad are confronted with different laws, procedural requirements and authorities. It is good to have a trustworthy contact to keep an eye on everything.“
