SGS e-Customs: Limited Fiscal Representation

When you import goods into a customs territory, you must pay import VAT. Even though you can claim it back later, you will suffer from a liquidity disadvantage until it is repaid. SGS’s VAT services are designed to improve your cash flow, particularly important post-Brexit. Over 90% of our German clients importing through the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp use our fiscal representation service to avoid paying import VAT.
