We provide all your logistics, customs, forwarding and European transport services from A to Z.
Amazon deliveries? We got it!
Deliveries to Amazon are possible for us. The only problem with fiscal representation is that with a delivery to an Amazon warehouse there is no official sale as the EU law states which must happen after a departure of goods from our warehouse in the Netherlands. With these kind of shipments you do not have an official buyer in the country of delivery at the moment we ship the goods from the Netherlands to the delivery address. We cannot defer the VAT without an official sale to a customer with a VAT number. Your company will stay the owner of the goods but cannot store the goods in another EU country where you do not have a VAT number.
We have two options for these shipments.
The first option
You need to register your company in another EU country ( the country were the shipment has to be delivered) for the VAT transfer from the Netherlands to that EU country. With this option we can use LFR for the import in the Netherlands as long as it is a small number of shipments and your company can import the goods with the use of the VAT number of Neele-Vat. For a larger amount per import shipment or several shipments we need to advice GFR in the Netherlands and we will use your dedicated Dutch VAT number.
During the set up you will have to let us know how many sales you are expecting and for which amounts. While we use LFR we will check this periodic and we can oblige you to change to GFR
The VAT does not have to be paid in the Netherlands ( we can defer it to a valid VAT number in the country of delivery) and the concerned VAT will be paid in the country of delivery after the sale to the consumer.
This is called a transfer of own goods. Neele- Vat can arrange this for your company in all EU countries and we will make sure you will meet all your fiscal obligation both in the Netherlands and in the other countries. Please check with us regarding our options
The second option
Amazon, Groupon or another company does officially buy the goods, this means a sales invoice and money transfer between your company and Amazon, this way we can use their Vat number and make an intra-community delivery for that shipment.
The second option will not be possible with a stock transfer of your own goods to warehouse in another country rented/ owned by your company or if the goods have not changed ownership yet, the first option is the only option in this case.

Quote request Fiscal
We have two options regarding fiscal representation: General Fiscal Representation (GFR) and Limited Fiscal Representation ( LFR).
Selling your goods
There is a perfect solution for selling your goods to any European customer. Due to fiscal representation you can sell the goods without charging VAT.
There are some requirements while using fiscal representation. See this link for information about incoterms, sales invoices and transfer of goods.
Shipments done as a sample shipment, a give-away shipment or goods delivered for free for a Sales representative can be shipped without paying Dutch VAT for a maximum.
Delivery to Amazon, Groupon or other companies and warehouses with no transfer of ownership on the moment of the transfer of the goods are no problem fur us at all.
For the Tax Law this transaction is called a “distance sale”. When a company imports goods and customs clears them in the Netherlands and sells these goods to a private person.
