Importing goods into Europe and looking to defer your import VAT payments?
Warehousing or using EU fulfilment partners such as Amazon, eBay or Etsy?
Protect your cashflow and boost your liquidity with fiscal representation!
If you import goods into the European Union as a foreign company, VAT is immediately due. While this VAT can be reclaimed later, it can also seriously hurt your company's cash flow, especially for unsold goods destined for fulfilment centres or warehouses. With import VAT deferment, the levying of VAT on imports can be transferred to your normal quarterly VAT return, protecting your cash flow and boosting your liquidity. Not only that, you'll benefit from a host of other trading solutions!
INCREASE YOUR CASHFLOW
If you fulfil EU orders via Amazon, eBay, Etsy etc., from Dutch warehouses or have long customer payment terms, then VAT deferment is just for you! Increase your company's liquidity by deferring your import VAT obligations (21%) to your quarterly VAT returns. Pay Import VAT after you sell, not before!
IMPORT VAT FREE WITH ARTICLE 23
With a Fiscal Representative taking care of your VAT obligations, you can import your goods into the EU and into free circulation without paying VAT on importation. With an Article 23 licence, deferred VAT is paid quarterly with your Dutch VAT returns.
FAST-TRACK CUSTOMS CLEARANCE
For time-critical delivery schedules, e.g. fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) or just in time (JIT) manufacturing deliveries, your Article 23 licence will fast-track customs clearance, giving your customers the immediate delivery options they have come to expect.
BUY & SELL WITHIN THE EU
With your goods inside the customs unions, Fiscal Representation enables you buy and sell your goods B2B and B2C within the Netherlands and to other EU Member States, opening up the biggest single market in the world, right on your doorstep!
As your Fiscal Representative, we will look after your Dutch VAT registration, quarterly VAT returns, EC sales listings, intrastat declarations etc. so you can concentrate on business growth & development!
EU VAT NUMBER
Fiscal Representation in the EU requires VAT registration in an EU Member State for VAT returns and reclaims to be made. You must also be VAT registered in the Netherlands to store goods in The Netherlands or for the inter-community supply of goods to an EU Member State. We'll get you registered and up and running in no time!
An EORI (Economic Operator Registration Identification) number is mandatory for the import of goods to the EU. We take care of registering you with a Dutch EORI number for you to import your goods to the EU.
Have you ever been charged Dutch VAT, either through import or triangular trade? We can reclaim Dutch VAT for up to 5 years from when you were charged on your behalf. Don't leave any VAT behind! We take the hassle out of reclaims!
