Frequently asked questions

Your company does not need to be incorporated within Europe, however distance selling EU VAT rules mean that if you sell to a European country then you will need to register for VAT for that respected country when you cross their VAT threshold.

It can take up to 12 weeks to receive a VAT number. However this can vary depending on the country, for example in Italy VAT registration can take 5 weeks, in Germany 8 weeks and in France it can take 6 weeks.

In most European countries it is possible to backdate the VAT registration if you have already made taxable transactions.

Switching accountants is usually straightforward and easy. You will usually need to send your old accountants a written confirmation that Sterlinx Global will now be handling your accounts and for them to expect us to contact them to collect all your records.

After this point, you can sit back and relax as we will liaise with the old accountants and manage all transfer of records, data and tax computations. We also notify HMRC and other government bodies that we are now the acting agents looking after your business affairs.

Absolutely not! Unlike traditional accounting firms that charge expensive fees by the hour, all contact with our team of accountants and bookkeepers is included free of charge within your package plan.
