International VAT Compliance

It’s essential for international businesses to ensure compliant VAT registration profiles are in place when trading cross-border.

The Accordance approach to compliance delivery combines the advantages of an efficient, well established processing capability alongside comprehensive international VAT knowledge.

Whether your business is already registered in multiple countries, or you’re considering the need to obtain your first international VAT registration, Accordance is set up to assist you.

Accordance’s one-stop-shop for VAT Registration services includes:

  • A Consulting led compliance service
  • VAT Registration service in over 50 countries, including all 28 EU Member States
  • VAT Return, Intrastat and EC Sales List reporting
  • A single point of contact for all our VAT services
  • One centralised compliance hub
  • On hand advice to confirm if your VAT registration and reporting profile is compliant

Rather than leaving you having to establish and manage relationships in many countries, or deal with high and unpredictable costs, Accordance’s single point of contact service brings control and visibility to the VAT Registration and Return process.

Accordance’s compliance and reporting team is composed of VAT professionals fluent in all of the major European languages. Team members bring a detailed understanding of the varying international VAT procedures, and also have an expert grasp of Intrastat and EC Sales List requirements.

Cross-Border Expertise

For commercial efficiency to be achieved, it’s essential to gain a full understanding of the VAT treatment of transactions when preparing declarations for the tax authorities. Experienced consultants are needed to ensure that the right decisions are made before filing begins – and to guide all ongoing compliance processes.

Accordance is unique in the close integration of its consulting and compliance teams. Our working practice has been developed because it’s not enough to simply submit returns and reports without taking a client’s broader VAT position into account. Accordance’s clients therefore benefit from the synergies we create between our compliance and consulting teams.

We carry out work for companies with greatly varying compliance profiles: from a single cross-border registration, to the full range of VAT, EC Sales List and Intrastat declarations internationally.
