VAT changes in France

4 November 2015

From 1 December 2016 non-resident VAT registered businesses will be required to settle their VAT returns via direct debit.  In order to set this up, the French tax authorities have stated that they require the registered company’s bank account details and also the authority to automatically withdraw the amounts of VAT owed direct from the businesses bank account.

From 1 January 2016 the distance selling threshold in France will be reduced from €100,000 to €35,000.  This reduction will mean that thousands of small retailers currently selling to private individuals in France will now have a liability to register for VAT in France in order to start charging French VAT on these transactions.
