Greece as your gateway to the EU.
“Fiscal representation is a winning option for a foreign company when importing goods in the name of the company from a country located outside the EU to an EU Member State, through Greece.“
The foreign company will be able to gain clearance for the goods imported through Greece (first point of entry) prior to selling the goods to another EU Member State company. The foreign company can highly benefit from a zero VAT, where no VAT is charged on the goods arriving at first point of entry into Greece and are then transported to another EU Member State (customs scheme 42).
Foreign companies wishing to make use of the scheme 42 can do so without their physical presence in Greece by appointing a fiscal representative in order to register for a Greek VAT number for customs formalities and not for tax purposes.
The scheme 42 will be declared in Greece and the required EU duties for the imported goods from third countries into the EU will need to be paid in Greece without paying VAT.
Once your company decides to appoint Unistar to act as their fiscal representative, we will proceed with your VAT registration. Through the fiscal representation in Greece, your company will obtain a Greek VAT number and it will have the ability to import goods into EU through Greece as first point of entry and then move the goods from Greece to your client located in another EU country, registered under the VAT act.
No Vat on import to the Greek Tax authorities will be paid and therefore a great opportunity to take advantage of the liquidity benefits.
Unistar can offer its quality service and act as your fiscal representative. We will be able to defer the payment of VAT from Greece to the final buyer’s VAT number located in another EU country. Upon delivery of goods to the final destination, VAT will be applied and charged to the final buyer where the goods have been delivered and sold to the final receiver.
