The represented company and the indirect customs representative are mutually and jointly liable for due tax compliance.
Head of Indirect Tax Services
VAT first aid for indirect customs representatives is a two-hour, personal consultation opportunity addressing the potential VAT risks of providing indirect customs representation.
The represented company and the indirect customs representative are mutually and jointly liable for due tax compliance. Part of this may be eliminated by systematic risk identification and risk management. This is the added value of our service offering.
Assigning the right to deduct VAT (leading to joint and several liabilities) and the relating documentation should be proper and updated, otherwise deducting VAT may generate serious risks.
The tax base for the imported goods usually changes retroactively (due to post-importation changes in its elements). If the processes guaranteeing continuous and due reporting of such modifications are unreliable, the entire VAT compliance becomes an exposure.
Keeping the invoicing and reporting of the transactions of a company not seated domestically due and prompt is the liability of the representative.
Failure to meet the conditions for VAT exemption, e.g. missing or incomplete proof of delivery to abroad bears the risk of the transaction being re-qualified taxable.
