Germany may force tour operators to VAT register
- 22 October 2012 | Richard Asquith
The German tax authorities have submitted a proposal to require foreign tour operators sub-contracting coach tours to register for VAT, and comply with German VAT reporting.
Currently, non-German coach operators who travel through the territory of German must register and charge German VAT at 7% or 19%. The new proposal would impose the same requirement on any tour operators who outsource the service to coach operators.
