European Declaration of Services (DES)

Since January 1, 2010, French companies providing services to companies established in other Member States of the European Community, must establish a “European declaration of services” (DES) which will summarize the operations performed. On this page, we detail everything you need to know to file your declarations or subcontract them.

What is the European Declaration of Service | The DES

The European declaration of services and the declaration equivalent to the Intrastat, for the supply of services. Commonly called the DES, it includes all the services sold between a French taxable person and a taxable person established in another member state of the European Union.

 

When you sell a service to a company located in the EU, you issue a reverse charge invoice. All these invoices must be included in the DES.

Who is subject to the European service declaration in France?

All taxable businesses providing intra-Community services, with the exception of the following services, are subject to the ESD:

Are you subject to the DES as a self-employed contractor?

In order to be able to file an EOB, either on paper or online, you must have an intra-community VAT number. Self-employed entrepreneurs must ask themselves if they are obliged to obtain this VAT number and to submit to the EHR? Please note that if you provide services to companies located in the European Union (outside France), regardless of the amount of your transactions, you must apply for an intra-Community VAT number and file a European service declaration!

Where to deposit your DES?

You can submit your declarations online on the customs website or via the paper form.

 

The easiest way is to do it online. First you have to create a prodouane account. The creation of the account is free.

 

The online European service declaration (ESD) allows French companies selling services to EU Member States to enter online and transmit to the relevant customs department the information related to their transactions.

 

This online service also allows you to:

When to submit your DES?

Each year, the customs administration provides a calendar indicating the deadline for the submission of European service declarations.

 

The reference period is the month in which the VAT became chargeable in the customer’s Member State and the SED must be submitted by the tenth working day of the following month.

 

In case you have nothing to declare, you can submit a nil declaration, but be aware that it is not mandatory.
