First we registered VAT in Germany, then we registered it in the PAN-EU model for our e-commerce and things went very smoothly. We have been performing VAT settlements with Taxology since 2018 and it is going swimmingly.

Michał Janik Michał Janik PMO | Krosno

Thanks to our cooperation with Taxology, we are confident that our VAT, in terms of Amazon's requirements, is correctly accounted for in the European Union. Taxology has handled the VAT registration and ongoing VAT settlements very professionally. Therefore, Taxology is an excellent choice for all Amazon vendors.

Lech Nitecki Owner | Ogrodosfera

We haven't been working with Taxology for a long time, but we are fully satisfied - assistance with OSS VAT settlements and the highest level of advice. If any problems emerge, we can always ask for their help. Previously, we worked with another tax agency. We are currently in the process of transferring all our VAT settlements to Taxology.

Dawid Gawin Owner | Musclepower

Our cooperation with Taxology has been going on for several years, and we have been able to rely on a multidimensional approach. They are constantly adjusting the warehouse management to our needs, for which we are incredibly grateful.

Agnieszka Swietowska Agnieszka Świestowska Board member | Atlanti

We have opted for the VAT compliance package. However, the most important thing for us was to automate VAT settlement processes, integrate them with Amazon and create transparent accounting reports. Taxology met our expectations in these matters, and we are also satisfied with the Pan-EU registration and VAT settlements.

Paweł Bogaczewicz Paweł Bogaczewicz CEO | BOGATECO

After being dissatisfied with the services of another agency, we transferred our settlements to Taxology. Currently, our cooperation has lasted for more than two years and with full confidence we can recommend Taxology's services to all companies that need help with VAT registration and accounting in Europe.

Rafał Milczarczyk Managing Director | M&Z

We have been working with Taxology since early 2020. They are a partner who always listens to us and at the same time advises with visible concern for our company. In addition, we value the knowledge and experience of Taxology's experts, who completely support us in VAT settlements in many European countries. Thanks to them, we no longer have to deal with VAT settlements and its deadlines or handle the communication with the tax authorities. We are confident that our VAT settlement issues are in good hands.
