Proof of tax liability
Why is the proof of tax liability needed?
The document proves that a company has a tax number and a VAT identification number, i.e. is registered in Germany for VAT purposes. If a foreign company that does not have a registered office in Germany generates sales in Germany, these are subject to sales tax.
Where do you get the proof?
Proof of tax liability must be obtained from a German tax office.
How long is the proof valid?
The proof is valid for a maximum of three years. If a revocation of the certificate by the tax office, this applies only to the future, not retroactively.
