Intermediary Service Supporting Global Businesses

Companies not established in the EU (unless established and supplying from Norway) are required to appoint an Intermediary to facilitate the reporting and payment of VAT under the IOSS scheme.

Sovos is set up to act as an Intermediary on behalf of your business. We will ensure that you reap the benefits of the simplification while safeguarding against the risk of penalties and expulsion for non-compliance.

Intermediaries assume joint responsibility for:

  • Reporting and payment of VAT under IOSS
  • Record keeping
