The term ‘fiscal representatives’ is a familiar term in the tax law in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Use of a fiscal representation makes it possible to declare goods in the country of arrival for an importer, who does not have a tax number in that particular country. Subsequently the goods must be delivered (VAT-free) in to anther EU country as an intra-community supply.
In order to make use of a fiscal representation, the importer needs to authorize the fiscal representative. The Compass Group has licenses in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, which allow them to act as fiscal representatives.
