Requesting a Belgian VAT number

€229 - €1.795

Currently, Belgium does not yet have a fulfillment center in Belgium (September '23). That means Amazon can't just stock your inventory in Belgium, and you don't necessarily need a Belgian VAT number for Amazon's FBA program. However, if you deposit stock in Belgium yourself or through another partner, you do need a Belgian VAT number.

You get these registrations with the Pan-European package:

What if I don’t have a VAT registration abroad?

If you do have stock stored there, you are still liable for VAT. This includes VAT registration and filings. Failing to file these declarations results in a surcharge.

This backcharge is always accompanied by a €68 late declaration penalty. In addition, a fine for non-payment, underpayment or late payment can amount to 3% of the amount to be paid. This can range from a minimum of €50,- to a maximum of €5.514,-.

When do you need a Belgian VAT number?

You need a Belgian VAT number if:

  • you buy goods in Belgium, and thus pay Belgian VAT, and you then (1) deliver these goods within Belgium and other EU countries or (2) export these goods outside the EU;
  • you import goods into Belgium from outside the EU, and then you sell them in Belgium and other EU countries;
  • you sell goods online to private individuals in Belgium and reach the distance selling threshold of €35,000;
  • transfer your own goods to Belgium, and there is a fictitious Intracommunity delivery;
  • You sell goods online through Amazon. When you sell goods in other EU countries through the Pan-European* FBA** program, you must register directly for VAT in those EU countries.

*Are you planning to sell Pan-European through Amazon? If so, you should note that you have to sell in 6 EU countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic).**FBA stands for Fulfilment by Amazon. Amazon’s warehouses are called “fulfillment centers.”

All about VAT

Can't find your question? Give us a call.

We can arrange VAT registration for you in any EU country, and do VAT returns for you in any EU country.

Don’t see your country listed on our product page? If so, contact support and we’ll see what we can do.

Do you have inventory stored abroad because you sell through Amazon FBA, for example, or use a European fulfillment center? Then you need an European VAT registration in that country! Save yourself the paperwork and let us apply for your VAT registration.

Where can I use the VAT registration?

You can use the VAT number for any business purpose. For example, when selling through Amazon, Bol.com, Shopify or another platform. The number is also valid if you are going to do business locally that requires a European VAT number.

You need a VAT number when you store stock in another EU country or when you go over a country’s threshold amount. You need to keep an eye on this: especially if you sell through marketplaces such as Amazon, Bol.com or Shopify.

Not sure if you need a VAT number? Let’s have a chat. We can also apply for a VAT number for you.

In every EU country! Is the country in which you want a VAT number not listed? Then contact us and we’ll see how we can help you.

The One Stop Shop (OSS) arrangement allows you to declare your cross-border sales in one portal. For example, you no longer need VAT registration in every country unless you stock up there. Do you sell more than €10,000,- annually to other EU countries? Then you qualify for the One Stop Shop. Sign up for the One Stop Shop can be done through “My Tax Business”.

Your sales should then be reported quarterly in your One Stop Shop declaration. Here you specify how much VAT you have to pay in each European country, depending on the local VAT rate of your products.

If you declare your VAT through the One Stop Shop, but also have stock in another EU country, you still need a VAT number there. A good rule of thumb is that you need VAT registration in a country as soon as you have stock there.

Want to save time and let us do your One Stop Shop declaration?

As a seller on Amazon, you have the choice to opt for Amazon FBA: this way, you distribute your inventory across Amazon’s European fulfillment centers in a snap. A good option if you want to go international! With FBA, your products also get to customers faster, and you have a better chance of winning the Buy Box.

If you choose Amazon Pan European FBA, Amazon will distribute your inventory across several countries. Because you’re stocking up there, you need a VAT number in each of those countries. To make it a little easier for you, we’ve put those countries into one package. You get a VAT number for each Pan-European country, so you can start selling right away. Our package includes one:

  • German VAT number
  • Polish VAT number
  • Czech VAT number
  • French VAT number
  • Spanish VAT number
  • Italian VAT number

Are all the VAT numbers in? Then we can also make sure that you remain VAT-compliant in these countries. That way, you no longer have to worry about your VAT, and you have more time left over to grow your business.

If you have a VAT registration abroad, you will also have to file VAT returns there. How often and when to do so, depends on the country. It can be monthly, or quarterly.

We understand that you don’t feel like doing all the VAT administration. So leave it to us: link your sales accounts to Staxcloud, so we can always accurately file your European VAT return. Then you won’t spend any more time on VAT returns.

Want to automate your VAT returns?

Is keeping up with your VAT obligations in Europe a challenge?

We make it simple: you get one clear overview of all your VAT flows. This allows you to see at a glance how much VAT you owe in each country. Wondering how it works? We’re happy to tell you all about it.
