A tax representative is a locally appointed business or individual who is generally jointly and severally liable for any VAT payable by the non-EU taxpayer.
In certain circumstances, EU Member States will require that a fiscal representative be appointed in the country of destination.
With general authorization, a fiscal representative:
- Acts on behalf of the non-EU business regarding VAT on the sale of goods and services. As well as all acquisitions made between EU member states and imports.
- Is jointly and severally liable for VAT, import duties or foreign charges. Included in the sale of goods/services by the non-EU company.
Non-EU companies using a tax representative will need to be registered for VAT in the country in which they intend to sell.
