Brexit and French VAT obligations of British companies in France : absence of fiscal representation

The last update of the FAQ relating to the Brexit relays the final position from the DGFIP about the VAT obligations of the British companies not established in France but which have VAT reporting obligations there:

  • Companies already registered will retain their VAT number
  • The foreign companies tax office (SIEE) of the non-residents tax center (DINR) will still have jurisdiction for the registration and the processing of the VAT files
  • British companies will not be required to appoint a fiscal representative, even in the absence of agreement. They will be able to appoint a VAT agent to be assisted in their reporting obligations
