VAT Late Submission Service

Service Description

DutyPay makes VAT compliance easy with VAT Late Submission Service.

Automatic data processing and all necessary VAT returns bundled in one service for the periods that the customer contracts DutyPay to process late submissions. If annual VAT returns are required by the country legislation, these can be prepared and submitted too.

Relevant business action data can be automatically integrated via APIs or file uploads. Interfaces to marketplaces and ERP systems are available or can be added on request.

In order to calculate the VAT due, the data provided is checked automatically and rule-based for completeness and reportability. Missing information can be added automatically. All data can be corrected by the customer before the final submission to the authorities.

With the approval for submission, a summary of the reporting data including complete payment information is provided.

Authority letters are automatically forwarded in electronic form. These letters are explained in understandable terms and in the language of the customer.

DutyPay makes VAT compliance affordable with its VAT Late Submission Service.

Service Requirement

DutyPay makes VAT compliance easy with its infrastructure and partner network.

To meet compliance specific deadlines or to minimise penalties for late filing all VAT-relevant business action data needs to be provided as quick as possible. Additionally, a valid reason for the late filing must be provided to add to the late VAT return.

VAT-relevant business action data is, for example, contained in data from following business events:

  • Sales:
    • Sales to consumers (B2C).
    • Sales to business customers (B2B).
    • Commingling buying and selling operations.
  • Cancellations:
    • Returned goods.
    • Refunds.
  • Stock transfers:
    • Transfers between warehouses, e.g. Amazon Fulfillment warehouses under Amazon's FBA program.
    • Storage into a warehouse.
    • Goods withdrawals from a warehouse.

Performance Period

DutyPay makes VAT compliance easy to plan.

Submissions of late VAT returns are usually processed immediately. Nevertheless, we provide services for up to 3 months for the VAT Late Submission Service. This provides sufficient time in the event that specific customer documents or information are not readily available.

It also allows time for interaction with the tax authorities. Sometimes they request additional information beyond that stipulated in the standard late VAT return.


DutyPay makes VAT compliance services easy to terminate.

The VAT Late Submission Service will end automatically upon fulfilment or expiry of the Performance Period.
