Fiscal Representation for VAT

Where a company is required to be registered for VAT in another country as a result of its business activities, it may be necessary to appoint a local Fiscal Representative.

The Fiscal Representative will usually be jointly and severally liable for the VAT owed by the business.

There is no requirement for EU businesses to appoint a Fiscal Representative when obtaining a VAT registration in another EU Member State. However, many EU Member States do require non-EU businesses to appoint a Fiscal Representative when registering for VAT locally. Equally, a Fiscal Representative is necessary when there is a requirement for a non-resident business to be registered for VAT in many countries outside of the EU.
