Limited Fiscal Representation

Limited fiscal representation allows goods to be imported into the EU without paying import VAT. This offers a significant liquidity advantage. Limited fiscal representation can be used when goods are imported into one EU member state having been sold to a company in another EU member state. For example, a US company sells goods to a German company and ships them to the harbor in Rotterdam or the airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

With the Limited Fiscal Representation we can act as a fiscal agent for companies who import goods into the EU.

Veterinary products

Veterinary products are:

  • Live animals
  • Products of animal origin (e.g. meat, fish, wild and feed)
  • Food (e.g. vegetables, dried fruit, spices, nuts and seeds)


When importing these products are often special measures taken in connection with the protection of public health. Here one must think of the time providing the appropriate paperwork (health, ingredients lists etc,), inspection by the FDA and Customs: The VWA also carries out checks on consumer products like toys, Christmas lights and electrical appliances.
