Should you register for Greek VAT?

The obligations to register for Greek VAT are similar to the rest of Europe, and are based on the EU VAT Directive.  Greece is permitted to vary these in accordance with derogations.  The most common examples of scenarios for VAT registration are:

  • Importing goods for the first time into Europe via Greece
  • Intra-community sales (dispatches) or purchases (acquisitions) of goods from other European Union states
  • Buying and selling goods within the Greek territory
  • Maintaining a consignment stock in Greece which is used to hold goods prior to resale locally.
  • Sales in Greece over the internet to non-VAT registered customers.  This is subject to a Greek annual sales threshold.
  • Holding events, conferences and exhibitions where admission is charged on the door.
  • If a company is otherwise a non-VAT trader, but is receiving services in Greece under the reverse charge rule.
  • The self supply of goods.

The supply of services by foreign companies does not trigger the requirement for a VAT registration.  This follows the 2010 VAT Package reform.

If you do need to VAT register, read our Greek VAT registration briefing to understand the requirements, including any VAT registration thresholds that may apply.
