Avalara VAT Returns deadlines for data and filing

Deadlines for providing Avalara your transaction data

All transaction data must be provided to Avalara by the 4th of the month following the filing period.

For example, data for a 1 June to 30 June filing period must be supplied to Avalara by the 4th of July. If the 4th of the month falls on a weekend or public holiday in your country, you must send the data by the next working day.

Avalara will prepare your VAT returns and notify you once the returns have been drafted. You will have 24 hours (one working day) to contact us about any amendments that are required. Approval is not necessary as Avalara will auto-approve and auto-file your returns on time, every time.

VAT returns filing deadlines

Every country sets its own reporting deadlines for VAT returns. Germany requires VAT returns to be filed within 10 days of the reporting period end. Most other countries expect them to be filed around the 20th of the month.
