VAT compliance throughout Europe

OSS Registration Service

Service Description

DutyPay makes VAT compliance easy with its OSS Registration Service for the Union Scheme.

The One-Stop-Shop (OSS) is an electronic VAT reporting portal for intra-community distance sales and certain domestic supplies. Businesses need to register at the One-Stop-Shop in their head office country.

Registration for the One-Stop-Shop is voluntary, but it might be the better choice for cross-border mail order businesses. With an OSS-Registration a company can submit VAT returns and pay VAT for its intra-community distance sales for all EU-countries in one portal instead of filing VAT returns in each EU country a company supplies goods to.

OSS registration and national VAT registrations can be used in parallel. For example, companies using the Fulfilment-by-Amazon (FBA) need to be VAT registered and file VAT returns for its intra-community transfer of goods between the warehouses.

DutyPay offers the OSS Registration Service currently only in a limited number of EU-countries. We continually expand our OSS Registration Services throughout the European Union. Make contact with us and get the current list of available countries.
