Registration term for foreign companies providing e-services expiring

As per February 15 the term during which foreign organizations providing E-services must file an application on tax registration will expire.

Since January 1, 2019 all foreign organizations, that sell electronic services and content to organizations, personal entrepreneurs and individuals, are obliged to pay Russian VAT to the budget of the RF regardless of whether they have a permanent representative office. All foreign suppliers must be registered in the tax office not later than 15.02.2019 via the online service “VAT-office of the IT-company”.

After the company has been registered with the tax office it will receive an INN and KPP for entering into an other service – “Personal account of a foreign company”. Through the personal account one can file tax declarations, pay tax,  communicate with and send documents.If the foreign company would not get registered with the Russian tax office and would not pay VAT, it could face severe fines up to 10 per cent of its revenues. In addition, VAT, a penalty and fine in the amount of 20-40 per cent of the unpaid tax sum will also be due by the foreign company.

Are you sure that your company does not provide e-services as listed by RF legislation?
