Who is a tax agent in Luxembourg?
Companies subject to VAT in their origin country, engaging in transactions that are taxable for VAT in Luxembourg, must identify themselves for Luxembourg VAT purposes at the Administration de l’Enregistrement des Domaines et de la TVA (AED).
In Luxembourg, appointing a tax agent to oversee your declaration obligations is not mandatory. However, it is recommended that all non-resident taxpayers use a tax agent to ensure that all VAT returns are filed and to guarantee continuity of all proceeding with the Luxembourg tax authorities.
The appointment of a tax agent when registering for Luxembourg VAT implies the possibility for the agent to act on your VAT returns (VAT return, Intrastat, EC Sales List, DES) but also to communicate on your behalf with the Luxembourg tax authorities.

How to register for VAT in Luxembourg?
In order to register for Luxembourg VAT, non-resident foreign companies must first provide proof of activity in Luxembourg, which requires identification. Before the Administration de l’Enregistrement des Domaines et de la TVA (AED) will issue a Luxembourg VAT identification number, the taxable person must provide irrefutable proof that in the near future they will carry out operations for which the VAT number is required. Without proof of activity, a foreign taxable person who does not have a permanent establishment in Luxembourg will not be able to obtain a VAT number.
The proof can be for a example in a form of a contract, an order form, a warehouse rental contract (in the case of a distribution center), an import document, a transport document, an invoice, or a proof of a merger or business acquistition.
The Luxembourg tax authorities also require the following documents:
It takes approximately 1 to 2 months to assign a Luxembourg VAT number, provided that the submitted documentation is complete. The registration file can be submitted electronically.
