VAT France

French VAT return 

How often is a VAT return filed in France?

Newly registered companies and companies submit a monthly VAT return.


For companies that did not exceed the limit of EUR 4,000 last year, the Tax Office may decide to change to quarterly VAT payment.



Monthly and quarterly returns must be sent between the 15th and 24th of the following month 

Is there anything else to file in addition to the VAT return?

Yes, if you exported goods to another EU country in a given month or quarter, you still need to submit an "EC Sales list" by the 10th of the following month.

What documents are needed for processing a VAT return in Germany?

Invoices received from suppliers

Invoices or documents for goods moved from another EU country to France (for example, if you send from your production warehouse to a warehouse in France or transfer goods from a warehouse in Germany to France)

Issued invoices - SMEVision works with documents in CSV, xls files, for sellers on Amazon, an Amazon sales list is sufficient.
