Who is concerned by the OSS in Belgium ?
The “One Stop Shop” (OSS) is a new VAT reform that has been put in place from 01/07/2021. Thanks to the OSS, any company selling to individuals in the EU will be able to declare and pay its VAT due in the whole EU on the same counter without having to register in each country of activity.
Any EU or non-EU company can take advantage of the OSS and IOSS one-stop-shops. In order to know your obligations in this regard, please refer to the FAQ at the end of this page, or contact one of our experts.

FAQ : Your questions about OSS/IOSS
The OSS Single Window is used to declare intra-community distance sales of goods located in the EU.
IOSS is used to declare sales of goods imported into the EU from outside the EU with a value of less than €150.
Any company located in the EU or outside the EU can register for OSS.
For third party companies, it is mandatory to open a VAT number without a permanent establishment in an EU country in order to register with OSS.
The OSS one-stop shop allows any company to carry out VAD from its country of tax liability without having to register in each country of destination of the goods! Thus, all you need is an intra-community VAT number and an OSS registration in the same country to declare all your sales and pay the VAT due from the 27 member states on a single window!
Deductible VAT cannot be recovered on the OSS single window. If you have supplier invoices in another member state and you have been charged foreign VAT, you can refer to our page for foreign VAT refunds.
The OSS single window is only used to declare intra-EU distance sales and returns.
An intra-EU distance sale is a sale made from a taxable company in the EU to an individual residing in a different EU country than the seller. In order for the distance selling to be considered as intra-community, it is imperative that the goods sold have a destination in a European country different from the EU country of departure! In case of a tax audit, the seller must be able to prove that the goods crossed the border.
Domestic sales, like deductible VAT, cannot be declared via the OSS, but must be reported in your VAT return.
Please note! The VAT to be paid back linked to these domestic sales must imperatively be the object of a payment totally independent from your OSS payment!
