VAT registered businesses are required to file periodic returns detailing all taxable transactions during that period and any VAT liability or refunds due.
EU member states set different deadlines and criteria to pay tax liabilities, so you need to be careful not to submit a late VAT return which could result in a penalty. Usually, VAT returns are filed either monthly or quarterly.
Businesses are still are required to file a VAT return, even if no taxable activity has taken place. This is also called a ‘nil’ return and is still subject to the filing deadlines.
To make the process easier, you can appoint VATINT to file the VAT returns on your behalf.
