Serbia VAT representative

Serbia VAT representative

The Serbian Ministry of Finance has confirmed the requirements of the appointment of a approved tax representative by foreign companies registering for VAT.

This is required for foreign companies providing VAT supplies in the country, typically goods. If the non-resident entity does not appoint a representative, then the local customer potentially becomes liable for the VAT. It is therefore recommended that buyers verify the VAT status of any foreign vendors in Serbian transactions.
