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.

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.
