How to do your VIES-registration

For Small Business Regimes

VIES-registration

This is the VAT registration that you need if you are buying services from, or selling services abroad (e.g. Uber in the Netherlands).

Under a VIES-only registration, you:

  • Do not charge VAT on your services;
  • Do not reclaim VAT on your business expenses;
  • Do declare and pay VAT on purchases of services from abroad; and
  • Do declare the sales you make to companies in EU countries

Simplified regime

When your turnover is less than 65.000 EUR, you might be able to register for the flat rate regime. More information can be found on this government website.
