France proposes to introduce fulfilment house scheme similar to the UK’s from 2020

9 July 2019

The French government is proposing to introduce a fulfilment house scheme in an effort to prevent VAT evasion committed by non-compliant, non-EU businesses selling goods online in the country.

This will mirror the UK “Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme” (FHDDS), which was introduced during 2017 and will target fulfilment houses in an effort to encourage them to monitor their customers’ VAT compliance.
