Austrian VAT

Dear All,

I'm not sure whether this is the right place to post my query. But my client's Austrian supplier is requesting a Monthly and Annual VAT Return toghether with the Fixed Assets Details for the Austrian Tax Office and Company Registrar as per Austrian Standard. He requested these files from NAV but I'm not sure what they are after. Unfortunately the Austrian Tax Department's website is in German and hence I couldn't understand anything.

Does anyone had similar requests? Or know what documents or formats these are? We're double checking with the supplier but they say it's standard, so maybe someone knows what are these standard Austrian documents?

Thanks a real lot!!

    Hi, I checked the local functionality on PartnerSource and reagarding Austria I found this notes:
    - Report "Fixed Assets - List AT": Fixed asset details are required as amendments for the AT balance sheet.
    - Report "VAT Statement AT": Completes a .pdf file based on a VAT statement. You must download the .pdf file, which is provided by the tax authority, from the Web.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi airam,

    are you really sure you understood the business need correctly? From what I understand of your initial post, your client is not Austrian, but your customer's vendor is. I do not know the situation in Austria in particular, but the one in the EU, which is somewhat harmonized.

    Concerning fixed assets:
    whose fixed assets is this about? your customer's? Then what should it concern Austrian's tax authorities? the vendor's? Then how and why is your customer supposed to know?

    Concerning VAT: Either your customer has to pay tax stated on the vendor's bill to the vendor, and or he has do pay tax or customs to his own authorities. In case your customer is in the EU, his vendor is supposed to bill without VAT and instead declare the tax free shipment to his tax authorities in the form of an EC Sales List (ESL = Zusammenfassende Mendung ZM in German), if your customer has a VAT identity number and has opted for this kind of transaction. Your customer then is required to pay local VAT to his tax authorities.

    In any case, it is highly unlikely, the objects geordie pointed out to you are the right thing for your customer. They almost certainly are meant for Austrian companies' reporting need to their own authorities.

    Have you noted the link at the top left denoted English (http://english.bmf.gv.at/)? Or else, can you tell me more about the German names of the forms, declarations, statements you need to know about, and I might have a look at it.
