VAT registration and recovery


For almost all services in Germany VAT (Value added tax, also referred to as Input tax or turnover tax) is levied.

The VAT (19%) has to be paid to the company delivering goods or services (e.g. business travel expenses, service fees, trade fair expenses etc.) but in general companies are entitled for a refund of this ‘Input’ VAT.

We file the VAT recovery application form and deal with the tax authorities to make sure that you get a refund of the Input VAT.

Selling products in Germany or delivering services to local companies may have VAT consequences. We help you to decide if you have to charge VAT or not.

We register your company for VAT purposes on your behalf (if necessary) and organise the domestic VAT filing procedure, prepare and file the monthly/quarterly and the annual VAT returns.
