When you import goods into a customs territory, you usually need to pay import value added tax (VAT).
Even though you can claim VAT back later, you still must fund this payment and 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. Learn about our fiscal representation services.
