Retrospective VAT Registration

It is your obligation as a business to register for VAT prior to undertaking any taxable activity in a foreign jurisdiction.

If you have already made taxable transactions but failed to register, the legislation in most countries allows you to register with a back-dated registration date. It is imperative that all transactions that took place after that retrospective registration date are declared and accounted for compliantly.

VATGlobal has experience in resolving the issues associated with retrospective VAT registrations and can advise you accordingly.
