Cross border VAT

Cross border VAT made clear with RMB, the independent VAT company

Cross border VAT rules have been applicable since the European customs borders were removed in 1993. Since this period, RMB has been assisting companies from all over the world with cross border VAT. Despite the numerous VAT changes over the last 25 years, cross border VAT still is very complex and unclear for many business operators. This complexity is due to the fact that many VAT regimes are different according to the kind of operations companies have within the European Union. The mission of RMB is to make cross border VAT clear and easy-to-deal-with for traders and to manage all their VAT obligations in the 28 EU Member States as well as Norway and Switzerland. RMB, as an independent company provides its clients with quick and detailed answers. Businesses often face urgent situations and want to have their cases managed and solved immediately. This obviously make some difference with lots of so called VAT specialists which are more legal departments than VAT practitioners. RM Boulanger prides itself on independence and service. Cross border VAT compliance is not secondary service for our company. RM Boulanger has been providing European VAT services for more than 35 years in all EU Member States + Switzerland and Norway.  RM Boulanger is not an accounting company nor a law firm. Cross border VAT is our speciality and we keep on developing this very specific activity with new clients that need reliable, practical information and fair pricing.

We talk about cross border VAT when a company sells goods or services to another company based in another EU Member State. Cross border VAT regulations also apply for companies based outside the EU selling goods or services from an EU Member State to another EU Member State. Cross border VAT regulations are set in a European Directive (2006/112/EU). The purpose of this Directive is to impose Member States with common cross border VAT regulations. However, each Member States can decide how they will implement these rules in their own VAT systems. Therefore, all EU Member States have different VAT systems which make cross border VAT very complex for traders. RMB assists more the 400 companies with their VAT returns and obligations. RMB’s clients have all decided to outsource this complicated and ever changing matter to this well-known and reputed VAT professionals.

Companies involved in Intracommunity operations are used to invoice their clients without VAT. They often believe that cross border VAT is easy to handle. It is commonly said that most of the B to B cross border operations are VAT zero rated and it is namely the case for Intracommunity supplies of goods and for most of the services provided within the EU. The issue with cross border VAT is that operators often do not often fulfil the conditions entitling them to exempt their invoices from VAT. They may therefore face a significant VAT risk exposure. Cross border VAT is very different for B to C operations as VAT has to be invoiced in most of cases and countries. The question is however to know which VAT applies between the country of the supplier or the country of the client. RMB’s experts would be more than pleased to help you answering these questions and analysing your operations from a professional VAT perspective.
