As a fiscal representative with a limited license we can only act on behalf of a non-resident company for the import of goods and subsequent supplies of these goods. For intra-Community or local purchases this scenario cannot be used. However, as the bulk of worldwide operating trading companies only have import, sales and returns in the EU limited fiscal representation is widely used in the Netherlands.
In practice, our Dutch VAT number is used for the customs clearance of your shipments. You don’t have to pay import VAT anymore due to our import deferment license and, unlike GFR (Gross Recurring Fees), you do not have to register for VAT purposes in the Netherlands and don’t have to set a bond. We are taking care of this.
