    What happens once I register?

    Once the VAT registration procedure is done, there are periodic VAT data requirements (VAT Returns and Intrastat VAT returns) which are necessary to fulfill according to the Slovenian tax authority requirements. We help you by collating the necessary data and submitting it on your behalf in the Slovenian language to the Slovenian tax office.

    What happens if I don’t send the information you need on time (for you to compile the VAT)?

    If we don’t receive the necessary data in time, the Slovenian tax authority can issue penalties or fines which you will have to pay in addition to any VAT you owe.

    What do you mean by ‘statistical returns’?

    A Statistical return is an ‘Intrastat filing’. This document is the method used by European governments to collect information and produce statistics on the movement of goods between member states in the European Union (EU).
