Fiscal representation
we help you with all our experience

The process of importing goods from a third country is associated with high administrative effort and costs. If, for example, a company from another EU member state imports goods from a non-EU country (third country) via one EU country, and the goods are to be cleared for free circulation upon arrival, not only customs but also the specific EU countries import turnover tax (VAT) would be incurred. It can take months before they are refunded, which affects the liquidity of a company.

Fiscal representation relieves companies of administrative effort and costs by providing advance financing for import turnover tax. It is specially designed for companies that import goods from a third country into the EU. They can do this via an EU member state in which they themselves are neither resident nor have any other taxable turnover before the goods are transported to the country of destination. In this EU member state, which serves as the importing country, Gerlach, as the fiscal representative, handles the sales tax for imports from third countries. We also take care of the prescribed reporting and declaration obligations (customs clearance).
