Webinar on changes to French import VAT – mandatory reverse charging

16 December

Webinar on changes to French import VAT – mandatory reverse charging

Some important changes will be coming into effect from 1 January 2022 in the French VAT regime, which will affect companies exporting goods from the UK to France.

From 1 January 2022, VAT on imports in France will no longer be collected by the customs authorities but rather will be automatically reverse-charged on the importer’s French VAT returns.

This means it will not be possible to import goods into France without a France VAT number, as all companies acting as importers of record in France will need to have a valid French VAT number and file VAT declarations.

Foreign companies can register for VAT in France even if they are not established in France or elsewhere in the European Union. DIT France in collaboration with RM Boulanger, a company specialised in cross-border formalities and tax matters, held a webinar on these changes.
