For companies that are not established in the Netherlands, but want to import goods into the Netherlands, the Fiscal Representation Scheme can offer a solution. Fiscal representation ensures that goods can be imported from the European Union without payment of VAT for import directly.
Fiscal representation is possible in the limited or general form.
In the general form you represent the customer in all deliveries and services for which VAT has to be paid. For example for intra-Community trade, when you buy goods that are transported from another EU country to the Netherlands, and where the supplier is a trader and / or for imports from non-EU countries.
In the limited form, representation only applies to a limited number of operations such as imports from non-EU countries and the purchase and sale of excise or bulk goods
In Gateway you can do all the administration that belongs to Fiscal representation. You can use information from other declarations for this without re-entering this data. You can also produce overviews that are required for the VAT return or for the customer.
