Advantages for companies with Europe-wide business

TRA can provide contact partners in nearly every European country. The contacts are all approved VAT specialists. If preferred, it is possible to have only one contact partner who then handles all the correspondence and work for the VAT compliance between the client and the other TRA partners. In our experience, for larger companies with business in several countries, this is the most effective way to handle their VAT affairs.

If you are interested in using our “only one contact” service, please send an e-mail to onlyonecontact@tra.org.
