Does the limited shelf company already has a VAT number and / or a tax number?
All our Austrian limited ready made companies are registered with the local tax authority and have already a tax number.
A VAT number can only be applied for once the Austrian shelf company commences its business. As our shelf companies are “virgin” companies and do not have any business prior to the transfer of shares to the buyer, they do not have a VAT number.
A VAT number can easily be applied for at the local tax authority. We’d happily assist you in this process.
A VAT registration number is alphanumeric and consists of up to 15 characters. The first two letters indicate the respective member state, for example DE for Germany.
When entering your VAT number, it must include the two letters that identify your EU member state (e.g. DK for Denmark, EL for Greece, and GB for the United Kingdom).
