E-Commerce: Documents You Need to Prepare When Expanding in Europe

Aug 1, 2020 | Business

Expanding your business in the European Union is an excellent business strategy. As an E-Commerce seller, you will get to target one of the biggest E-Commerce markets in the world. According to Statista, after the US, Germany is ranked as Amazon’s next biggest market with net sales of almost 20 billion dollars; next is UK with 14.5 billion.

It’s no wonder why most companies who wish to broaden their business horizon make the decision of selling their products in the UK and in Europe. In fact, most of them were only able to attain their level of success after they expanded their business there.

Whether you’re a startup business, a medium-sized enterprise or an established corporation, growing your business thru the means of business expansion requires a hefty amount of documents – especially in Europe.

While the preparation of the relevant and needed documents can be learned and done easily, having your documents approved is another thing.

E-commerce VAT Number

A VAT registration number is needed in order to sell to Europe. It’s one of the many documents that the European government requires when starting a business there – and it takes a lot of familiarity with European law to see fast and effective results.

Many business owners get discouraged once they realise that there’s no guarantee that their prepared and submitted documents will get approved. That’s why they seek help from professionals instead.
