Brexit and fiscal representation

Danish VAT Reg. is prepared for a hard Brexit and ready to assist with fiscal representation in Denmark.

In the case of a no-deal Brexit, as 2020 comes to an end, UK registered companies will change to third-country status in Denmark and the rest of the European Union. This means that, in some cases, UK companies will need to become VAT-registered and fiscally represented in Denmark as a result of the UK leaving the EU. Danish VAT Reg. is prepared and ready to assist any UK company that requires our services regarding VAT compliance in Denmark.

Some companies need fiscal representation in Denmark

The need for a danish fiscal representative occurs when a company is registered outside of the EU and is selling goods in Denmark.

The law in the VAT area demands that such companies appoint a fiscal representative in Denmark. The representative is then jointly liable for the non-resident company regarding the VAT payments.

… and some companies need fiscal representation abroad

If a company has VAT-liable activities in another country, VAT registration is required. And if the sale to private individuals exceeds the threshold for registration in the countries in question, VAT registration is also required.

It can be difficult to assess whether a company should be registered and determine from when a VAT registration should be valid. In a lot of countries, we can handle the contact to the relevant authorities as well as the paperwork in connection with the registration itself. In addition, we can make the periodic VAT reports and any Intrastat or other statistical report. In cases where a country’s national law, prevents us from representing you directly, we can represent you via proxy.

Please contact us if you need more information and/or prices.

BE AWARE OF BREXIT! If your business is established in an EU country, for example, Denmark, you may need to become registered for VAT in The United Kingdom after January 1st. If you have not considered your VAT compliance in the UK at this point, there is no time to waste.
