VAT Reverse Charge Mechanism on Imports: new regulations (2022)

ATTENTION For all final imports, including giveaways, samples, mock-ups, prints, etc.

Since January 2022, France has changed its legislation about import taxes. Now all importers, either French and foreigners, must be registered in France to have a French VAT number and use the reverse charge mechanism . Instead of paying import taxes and duties to French Customs via our services, importers have to declare their import taxeson their own French monthly taxes return in order to pay it. They still need to use our services for the import duties and the formalities.
