French Corporate VAT Registration and VAT
Compliance for EU Based Companies

French legislation from January 1, 2016 approved a change of rules for a range of foreign companies based in Europe. This concerns foreign companies selling products and services into France from outside [distance selling]. This applies to conventional and online sales in France.

New Rules for EU-Based Companies

New legislation will impact a range of EU-Based Companies engaged in selling products into France.

Currently EU-Based companies selling into France are required to register where their turnover in respect of French sales exceeds 100K Euros annually. The new legislation adjusts this threshold down to 35 000 Euros annually.

EU-Based companies will be required to register in France for VAT purposes if their turnover exceeds this amount annually, and pay VAT in VAT accordingly.

Fiscal Agent

This EU based companies breaching the threshold of 35 000 € online selling in France, have the choice between:

  • either to declare themselves the VAT collected on their sales in France, and pay the VAT amount (monthly or quarterly) to the French tax authorities.
