Below are the general steps associated with this process.

Before preparing the OSS declaration, the business must accurately define the scope of its transactions, including both the supply of goods and provision of services.

A business wishing to utilize the OSS system must register in the relevant EU member country as a VAT taxpayer. In some cases, this may involve registration through a specialized online portal.

Preparation of the OSS declaration

The business must prepare an OSS declaration, providing detailed descriptions of its transactions, VAT amounts, and other relevant information.

The OSS declaration includes various fields where the business must input information regarding its activities, transaction types, VAT amounts, etc. Completing these fields is crucial for the accuracy of the declaration.

Submission of the OSS declaration

The completed OSS declaration must be submitted to the appropriate tax authorities in the country where the business is registered in the OSS system. Submission can often be done electronically through an online platform.
