Transfer of VAT upon import

Transfer of VAT upon import:if the importer starts to increase his imports from outside the EU, his accountant may submit a request for VAT transfer to the Tax and Customs Administration.

As soon as this transfer is granted, VAT upon import will no longer have to be paid immediately, but can be settled later, when filing the VAT return. The importer’s VAT number will be amended in the Sagitta system and be recognised as such.

The transfer licence is available from the Tax and Customs Administration. Contact Embassy Freight Services for more information via
