Vente à distance intracommunautaire UE

Distance sales within the European Union include cross-border sales of goods and services to a private consumer (B2C) in another EU Member State when the seller doesn’t meet face-to-face with the customer. Organizations must ensure that the VAT on distance sales is paid to the Member State in which the goods or services are delivered.


This remains true even if your organization is located outside of the European Union.

While this regulation mainly applies to eCommerce sales to private EU consumers, it is also valid for mail order sales and telesales.

The Union One-Stop Shop (OSS) is an online portal where businesses can register for the OSS and declare their intra-community distance sales. Each EU member state integrates an online OSS portal.

The EU intra-community Distance Selling feature helps your organization comply with this regulation by creating and configuring new fiscal positions and taxes based on your company’s country.


Go to Accounting/Invoicing ‣ Settings ‣ Taxes, then enable EU intra-community Distance Selling (or EU Digital Goods VAT if you created your database before July 1, 2021), and Save.
