After i posted this, i read it and realised!
We are under the 100,000EURO threshold for VAT in Germany (UK seller). We will be way under, probally around 20,000EURO this year in sales.
So what is this tax number, does it mean that we need to then file VAT/TAX returns in germany each quarter or year.
What we dont want to do is apply and have loads of paperwork to do.
Whats you thoughts on this.
