VAT Deregistration Service

Service Description

DutyPay makes compliance easy with VAT Deregistration Service.

Deregistration means applying for the contract country to delete the customer record from its file of taxpayers. This results in the Tax Identification number and the intra-community VAT number being erased in the contract country's records.

The VAT Deregistration Service provides all the necessary information and services.

Deregistration can take time to process by the authorities. Customers must be mindful that this may require continued submission of VAT returns until the deregistration is confirmed by the respective country tax authority.

DutyPay makes VAT compliance affordable with its VAT Deregistration Service.
