EU VAT registration - VAT in Greece

VAT registration in Greece

General Information:

Value added tax was introduced in Greece in 1987. It is known as Foros prostithemenis aksias (FPA). Like all EU member states, Greece complies with European VAT directives (laws). It sets out the rules for VAT registration, compliance, rates, returns, Intrastat and related declarations.

Greek VAT laws are laid down in the VAT Act of 2000. They are administered by the Ministry of Finance which issues detailed decisions. Firms that are foreign resident are bound to abide by these rulings.


VAT registration in Greece for companies:

Foreign companies can register for VAT in Greece without having to set up a local company, i.e. you can register as a non-resident. In Greece, there is no VAT threshold for the registration of foreign entrepreneurs. However, the application for a VAT number must be submitted to the appropriate department. This also applies to situations where foreign companies carry out intra-Community supplies of goods. If you know that you need to register VAT in Greece, do not hesitate and contact us and we will help you.

The competent tax office will then assign a Greek VAT Number. Non-EU entities not established, domiciled or established in the European Union must appoint a tax representative in Greece. The tax representative is responsible for the tax obligations of the taxpayers he represents.
