"During the course of building new commercial premises in France, we called upon the services of foreign sub-contractors, and we had to ship construction materials from other EU countries. That had consequences on our VAT return. The experts at A.VAT.S clearly explained what our obligations were and ensured that those invoices and the rest of the administrative paperwork was right, down to the smallest detail. We also didn't have to worry, for a single second, about the declaration to the French tax authorities, nor about the offsetting of VAT."
