Tax Compliance in Germany

We support your business in Germany

Germany is a big and attractive market for all kinds of businesses. Small and medium-sized companies (SME) from abroad should not hesitate to take their chances. On the other hand, German taxation and social security is said to be strict and complicated. That is true, but Bedenbecker & Berg GmbH can help.

New: Clearance certificate for sellers on electronic marketplaces („Erfassungsbescheinigung-USt 1 TI“)

From January 2019 on electronic marketplaces (Amazon, Ebay and many others) are liable for German VAT that is owed by the participating sellers (§ 22f UStG-E). However, VAT-liability of that kind does not apply for (domestic and foreign) sellers, who are certified by the German tax offices.

The E-marketplaces will most probably exclude those sellers who are not certified. Starting the certification process is recommendable. (11.01.2019)
