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, import VAT 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 will be recognized as such. A statement proving the same is available from the Tax and Customs Administration.
