In the event of clearing goods for import, Embassy Logistic Services can act for European and Dutch companies. As the VAT on import must be transferred to a non-Dutch VAT number, a special customs procedure is followed, during which we act as fiscal representative. Before this procedure can be started, the foreign client must authorize the forwarding agent in writing.
Fiscal representation only relates to representation for the turnover tax payable upon import. When represented in this way you will need a license from the Tax and Customs Administration.
For fiscal representation, the representative must be established in the Netherlands. The party that is represented must be established in another EU country or a country outside the EU.
