Just be sure to also run a search on any company you choose, so that you can find out about their reputation and their fees before you register with one.
How does the process work? — All it takes is completing a short application form, which is similar to the one you would complete on the tax authorities’ website. The difference is any company you choose makes it easier for you to complete. They also do all the submittal work after your application has been completed.
What do you need to give them? — Any company you choose will only ask for simple information.
