EU VAT registration - VAT in France

VAT registration in France

General Information:

VAT registration in France – France was the first country to introduce VAT, followed by Germany and other European Union countries. It introduced value added tax Taxe sur la Valeur Ajoutée or TVA in 1954. It was then extended to the entire economy in 1968.

France implements European “rules” in a general tax code called the Direction de la Legislation Fiscale, which manages VAT in France together with regional tax offices.

Foreign entrepreneurs, known as “non-resident” traders, providing goods or services in France to local businesses or consumers must comply with French VAT rules, which may include the obligation to register French VAT activities. They will have to comply with French VAT compliance rules, including invoicing, VAT rates, and pay French VAT due.
