VAT Group Explores Cross-Border Challenges: Non-Established Entities in Focus (Denmark vs the Netherlands) (Episode 3)

"DLA Piper Experts Discuss VAT Group Inclusion of Non-Established Entities in Denmark and the Netherlands"

Title: Understanding VAT Group Inclusion for Non-Established Entities: Insights from Danish and Dutch Experts

In the latest episode of our series, “Navigating European VAT Regulations,” our host, Aloïs, delves into the intricacies of VAT group inclusion for non-established entities. This episode takes us to Denmark and the Netherlands, where we have the privilege of speaking with Attorney Director Mario Fernandes and Senior Tax Advisor Jesse Peeters from DLA Piper. Their expertise sheds light on the process and challenges faced by non-established entities seeking to enter a VAT group.

VAT group inclusion is a concept that allows multiple entities to be treated as a single taxable person for VAT purposes. This arrangement can bring various benefits, such as simplifying administrative procedures and optimizing VAT recovery. However, the eligibility criteria and procedures for non-established entities to join a VAT group can be complex.

Attorney Director Mario Fernandes emphasizes that non-established entities must carefully evaluate their options before deciding to enter a VAT group. He explains that while VAT grouping can be advantageous, it also comes with certain obligations and potential risks. Non-established entities should consider factors such as the impact on their VAT recovery, compliance requirements, and the potential loss of control over VAT-related decisions.

Senior Tax Advisor Jesse Peeters further elaborates on the challenges faced by non-established entities when attempting to enter a VAT group. He highlights that the rules and requirements for VAT group inclusion may vary between countries. In Denmark, for example, non-established entities must have a fixed establishment in the country, while the Netherlands allows non-established entities to join a VAT group without a fixed establishment. This distinction underscores the importance of understanding the specific regulations of each jurisdiction.

Peeters also discusses the role of the tax authorities in assessing the eligibility of non-established entities for VAT group inclusion. He advises that non-established entities should proactively engage with the tax authorities and provide comprehensive documentation to support their application. This includes demonstrating a sufficient economic, financial, and organizational connection with the VAT group.

Navigating the VAT group inclusion process can be complex, particularly for non-established entities. However, both Fernandes and Peeters emphasize that seeking professional advice is crucial to ensure compliance and maximize the benefits of VAT grouping. Engaging with experienced tax advisors can help non-established entities understand the specific requirements of each jurisdiction and develop a tailored approach to VAT group inclusion.

It is essential to note that VAT group inclusion may not be suitable for all non-established entities. Each case requires careful consideration of the potential advantages and disadvantages, as well as the specific circumstances of the entity. Seeking professional advice tailored to individual needs is crucial in making an informed decision.

In conclusion, our conversation with Attorney Director Mario Fernandes and Senior Tax Advisor Jesse Peeters from DLA Piper has shed valuable light on the intricacies of VAT group inclusion for non-established entities. Their insights have highlighted the importance of understanding the specific regulations of each jurisdiction and seeking professional advice to navigate the complexities of VAT grouping. Non-established entities must carefully evaluate the benefits and risks before deciding to enter a VAT group, ensuring compliance and maximizing the advantages offered by this arrangement.
