Value Added Tax in local language is "Mehrwertsteuer" and the acronym VAT is translated as "MWSt".

Fiscal representative requirements in Germany

Unlike other EU countries, in Germany, non-EU companies do not require a fiscal representative to register for VAT.

EU and non-EU businesses can register directly for VAT purposes. This means that the legal representative of the company can sign the registration form without any local German involvement.

A fiscal representative or customs agent may be required when performing certain customs related transactions.
