Fiscal representation
Fiscal representation


Supporting your growth and ensuring local VAT compliance


Do you wish to accelerate your commercial development in Europe? For this you must have a VAT number in each of the countries in which you wish to operate and make supplies. Indeed, VAT is mandatory to trade in Europe and remains primarily a national tax governed by each national tax authority.

VAT registration and management of fiscal declarations may present risks for your business continuity in terms of compliance and always constitute a significant regulatory and paperwork workload.
To trade in new European countries seamlessly and securely, two solutions are available to you: 

  • Create a subsidiary 
  • Appoint a fiscal representative

The first solution can often be long and costly and requires detailed technical input on local regulatory requirements, which are often complex. 
With the second option, CEVA Logistics support you all along the process as Fiscal Representative  in the 27 countries of the European Union, in the UK, Norway and Switzerland through our centralized organization:  

  • ​​​​​​​A fiscal engineering department  
  • A dedicated taskforce of bilingual accountants liaising with the local fiscal administrations. 
  • A dedicated IT system “i-VAT” 

With this unique expertise and organization on the Transport & Logistics market, CEVA experts identify risks and opportunities, simplify and secure your VAT operations in Europe.
