What to look out for with fiscal representation
According to § 22a of the Value Added Tax Act (UStG), the representation of a company based abroad as the tax debtor for the import sales tax can be provided by a fiscal representative based in Germany. The prerequisite for this, however, is that this function can only be carried out by special experts and that the foreign client has a power of attorney. We would be happy to take care of all the formalities for your delivery of goods:
Tax-free imports that are immediately followed by an intra-Community delivery (§ 5 Para. 1 No. 3 UStG)
Tax-free intra-community acquisitions that are immediately followed by an intra-community delivery (§ 4b No. 4 UStG)
Tax-free cross-border transport of objects within the meaning of § 4 No. 3 UStG, provided that the entrepreneur does not purchase any deliveries or other services for which he can deduct input tax according to § 15 UStG.
