Consequences of Late VAT Return Filing

Failure to file VAT returns on time can result in penalties for foreign non-established businesses operating in France. Late submissions may lead to financial sanctions, interest charges, and potential audits by the tax authorities. Additionally, delayed VAT return filings can impact the business's reputation and create legal implications.

VAT refunds in France

VAT credits can be offset against any VAT liability that the business owes to the tax authorities. If the VAT credits exceed the VAT liability, the excess can be carried forward to future periods or refunded.


The refund application is typically submitted electronically through the dedicated online portal of the French tax authorities.
