Among other things, we take care of the following VAT issues for you:
- VAT number application and ongoing support
- Storage in Germany
- Online marketplaces like Amazon, Ebay, etc.
- Exceeding the delivery threshold for cross-border supplies to private individuals
The following case study has the purpose of illustrating how we support you in this regard:
The Italian company Rossi Srl is a well-known manufacturer in the food sector. Now Rossi would also like to enter the German market. To this end, it intends, in part, to deliver directly from Italy but also via other external suppliers in Italy and Germany, as well as from other countries such as Austria and Belgium.
In addition, Rossi Srl would also like to provide consulting services from Italy and Germany.
It already has the know-how for this project at its disposal but what about turnover tax to ensure correct invoicing?
Thanks to our focus on foreign companies, we have the necessary expert knowledge and can support you in your project in Germany by taking a closer look at the following questions together with you:
1st Would it make sense to set up a warehouse, a permanent establishment or a GmbH (limited liability company) in Germany?
2nd How are the invoices of the suppliers from the different countries and directed towards the end users to be issued for VAT purposes? What happens if goods are resold by several parties in sequence, but the goods themselves go directly from the first supplier to the last customer (chain transaction/triangle transaction)? When these criteria are not complied with, substantial VAT back payments may become due!
3rd Input tax refund: How can the input taxes paid in Germany (e.g. hotel, petrol receipts or trade fair services) be refunded?
