General and Limited Fiscal Representation for import

Foreign companies that import goods into the Netherlands and then export them onwards, do not want to pay VAT on these imports. Companies therefore do not want to perform a complete VAT tax administration, as well as not always being fully aware of the VAT legislation.

We can act as an Limited Fiscal Representative where we enter the goods under our Tax VAT number and we then transfer the VAT taxes to the final recipients in the EU. The company does not need to register itself for VAT. Therefore they will have only one partner for both customs and VAT matters.

We can also act as General Tax Representative with a permit to allow us to transfer the import VAT taxes. For the foreign company we request a personal Dutch VAT number to which all trading activities can be specified. This would be required for declarations such as the import of goods and transfer of goods to other EU countries but also for EU acquisitions.

We provide all the VAT administration including the Intra-Community and Intrasat returns for you.

Making shipments neutral

When it is desirable that a recipient of the goods cannot trace the origin of them, new shipment transport documents need to be created. For this, goods are made ??entirely neutral.

We can help at any point in the process from the transport letter to the invoice, proof of delivery documents and customs documents. If necessary, the cargo can be sealed, and pictures of the seals and the quality of the load taken. Naturally, here we also guarantee our independence.

Veterinarian inspection

The task of the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) is to protect human and animal health. It monitors food and consumer products to safeguard public health and animal health and welfare. The Authority controls the whole production chain, from raw materials and processing aids to end products and consumption.

For the importation of these goods like ( UCO ) Used cooking oils VEREX can assist in all the formalities regarding the veterinarian control, planning of the VET at the veterinarian checkpoints etc. For the import of these goods are inspections and NVWA appointments needed(food and consumer product safety authority) approved by the European Commission through a border inspection Post (BIP).

To import these goods is a good contact with the NVWA and customs of great importance. Verex is specialized in veterinary inspections of oils of animal origin.

To do this, we arrange all the formalities around submission of veterinary checks, such as the accompanying veterinary requirements ( commercial documents, T-5, etc.), planning of controls at the health point, coordinating the transportation, and the fiscal arrangements like import or transit declarations.

These formalities can be done in Rotterdam and other locations in The Netherlands where this is authorised.
