As one of the member countries of the EU (European Union), the rules on German VAT registrations, returns and compliance are based on European Union EU VAT Directives which German has transposed into its VAT Act. This free invoicing sample in Excel and PDF format follows the German VAT compliance rules. It charges MwSt VAT tax at 19% by default.
The German tax law is very formal and also the VAT invoice requirements are very strictly. The German rules are conform to the obligations of the EU VAT Directive and its VAT invoice requirements. Refer to German VAT invoice requirements and VAT invoicing rules for more information.
Foreign companies, or ‘non-resident' traders, providing goods or services in Germany to local businesses or consumers may have to register their business for German VAT. They will then have to follow the German VAT compliance rules, including invoicing and VAT rates, as well as pay over any German VAT due. See "hould you register for German VAT" for more details.
