Since January 1st, 2022, it is necessary to obtain a French VAT number before carrying out an importation in France. The commercial importation in France allows a VAT exemption upon importation.
The good news is that owning companies who already have a French VAT number do not need to request a new one.
Therefore, if you already have a French VAT number, the importation will be much quicker than in the past. There are no more authorizations to request which sometimes caused delays that could prevent a fast importation in France.
